KORANET Closing Event and Policy Workshop

More than four years ago the KORANET project was started as a response to a demand for improved and increased STI co-operation between Korea and Europe. The KORANET Closing Event which is open to the public will review the project's achievements and discuss the challenges which had to be overcome. The lessons learned as well as current developments in both Korea and Europe will be used as a basis for a view ahead at the future design of EU-Korean cooperation and the main strategic priorities which have to be addressed.

We would like to invite you to this event and would kindly like to ask you to register until 8 May 2013.

The KORANET Policy Workshop will take place one day prior to the Closing Event on 23 May 2013. The Policy Workshop will discuss how the strategies proposed by the KORANET Policy Paper and Joint Action Plan can be implemented by relevant European and Korean stakeholders.

The following three topics important for shaping the future cooperation will be addressed by the workshop:
  • EU-Korean reciprocity in R&D funding - mutual participation possibilities and access to funding instruments 
  • EU-Korean Joint Calls Interest Group: continue a flexible multilateral EU-Korea funding scheme
  • Promote and strengthen institutional cooperation, increase mobility

If you are interested in participating in the KORANET Policy Workshop we would kindly like to ask you to contact Ms. Hanna Scheck at the Center for Social Innovation, Vienna (scheck@zsi.at).
