Projects and spin-offs

The CAR-ES network is continuously applying for funding for new research projects and new network meetings and activities that connect the work of CAR-ES to work conducted in a broader geographical scale or together with other sectors. Finally, CAR-ES also initiates research activities based on own funding.

Find a list below of research projects (I), networks (II) and activities (III) with which CAR-ES is involved:
