Webinar „Connecting researchers across Europe“

Data - 22/09/2021
14:00 - 15:30

Better connecting excellence in the EU  


On September 22nd and September 30th, Neth-ER and KNAW will host two webinar sessions on how to better connect researchers and research organisations across Europe. The webinars ask what needs to be done at different governance levels to create a more integrated and cohesive European research & innovation system. During the first webinar on 22 September, we invite researchers from two Horizon 2020 Twinning projects to reflect on lessons from their cooperation and what they expect of the partnership. In the second webinar on 30 September board members of research organisations will comment on institutional strategies that can increase cooperation and interlinkages between research and innovation actors in the European Research Area and how to better coordinate policies and programmes at the European, national and regional level.Registration link
