Partner finding - outside the UK

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

The purpose of this page is to assist UK researchers and practitioners in finding partners outside the UK to participate in the ESPON call launched in August 2011. 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.

Information regarding researchers who have expressed interest in finding partners for previous calls can be accessed here.
