News archive - ERA WESTBALKAN+ Meets Stakeholders

The successor to the project ERA WESTBALKAN, which ran from 2004-2006, began on January 17, 2007. The aim of the original project was to build up and enhance the capacities of FP7 National Contact Points (NCP) in the Western Balkan countries and to develop a database of Westbalkan researchers. The continuation of the project, called 'ERA WESTBALKAN+', also funded by the INCO programme of FP6, will further develop the NCP cooperation.

The project has also been enlarged by additional partners from Croatia and Albania. At the outset, one major aim was immediately addressed: the networking with stakeholders in the EU Member States. The project co-ordinator FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Agency) organised together with the ZSI (Centre for Social Innovation) a meeting of ERA WESTBALKAN+ with stakeholders from Austria (see picture).
