ESPON Partner Finding - Outside the UK Archive January 2011

Information listed here relates to the January 2011 ESPON Call which is now closed.

The purpose of this page is to assist UK researchers in finding partners outside the UK for the ESPON calls launched in January 2011 to form a Transnational Project Group (TPG) which would then bid for ESPON resources. The page will be updated as interest is expressed.

While the ESPON UK Contact Point exists to offer general support to the UK community, please note that all formal queries and applications must be addressed directly to the ESPON EU Co-ordination Unit.

Find Partners in the UK

ESPON Partner Café

The ESPON Partner Café facilitates the creation of transnational project groups. Interested organisations can join by completing the "Partner Information Form". For more information, or to join the Partner Café, visit the ESPON partner finding webpage.

There are currently 144 members of the group, a number of which are discussing the creation of transnational project groups for the latest call. Join the Partner Café on LinkedIn.
