WP2 - Stronger interaction between researchers & participation in H2020



This WP offers a set of comprehensive measures to support a stronger interaction between researchers from EU and EaP countries and to warrant increased participation in H2020 Framework Programme.

In particular, H2020 Info Days will be organised as well as NCP trainings will be provided. Targeted  cooperation  will be encouraged between the EaP research communities and the national Scientific Diasporas in EU to stimulate synergies among them. Grants will be provided to EaP researchers in order to effectively link with their EU counterparts. Finally, innovative e-tools will be established through webinars in order to provide continuous on-line assistance to EaP researchers.
