During the course of the day there will be several workshops on how to form creative research networks. There will also be time for mingling with new friends and to mirror each others dream projects in networking.

You will get firsthand information about SNS and EFINORD calls in 2018 and useful tips on how to write successful applications! This is a great chance to meet new colleagues and form new, creative research networks or develop existing networks for your future career!
