Working Group Meetings

We’re thrilled to share the inspiring outcomes of our recent meetings, where we discussed and strategized initiatives that are shaping the future of research and innovation! Through collective efforts, we have achieved remarkable results that align perfectly with our goals of advancing knowledge, fostering innovation, and enhancing global research collaboration.

🔍 Creating Open Spaces for Ideas: Our discussions have led to the creation of vibrant open spaces that encourage the free exchange of ideas. By providing researchers with a platform for sharing their insights and perspectives, we’re fostering a collaborative environment that sparks innovation and drives progress.

💡 Building an Internal Market for Innovators: One of our key achievements is the establishment of an internal market that nurtures researchers and innovators. This dynamic ecosystem facilitates the flow of ideas, expertise, and resources, amplifying the impact of our collective efforts and propelling innovation forward.

🌐 Enhancing Interconnectedness: Our commitment to nurturing connections knows no bounds! Through these meetings, we’re strengthening bonds across countries, generations, and genders, fostering a rich tapestry of perspectives that drive research excellence both in Europe and beyond.

🌏 Promoting Global Cooperation: Embracing a global mindset, we’re dedicated to promoting research cooperation on a global scale. By fostering partnerships across borders, we’re expanding access to excellence and contributing to a thriving global research community.
