FH-Europa: weR-NEAR – Regional Network for European Activities and Research at Ostfalia and Harz

The project´s goal is to strengthen the networks between partner Universities which were developed through previous research projects, transfer-activities and lecturer and personnel mobility. The Ostfalia will primarily focus on cooperations and contacts in Finland and Portugal. 

Research focuses will be determined in cooperation with researchers. Cooperative online-workshops with researchers from the University Harz will then be used to compare the set focuses. The goal: German, finnish and portuguese researchers will exchange and discuss ideas regarding the set research focuses and will create networks for cooperative applications within Cluster 2 of Horizon Europe. 

We would gladly shine a light upon you and your research focus, present it on an european level and help you to strengthen networks throughout europe.
