Project CONTACT selected for CEI funding
1 January 2017

The Committee of National Coordinators (CNC) selected for funding the project CONTACT – CERIC-CEI OpeN ACces Training, with a Central European Initiative – CEI contribution for a CEI cooperation activity. The project officially started on January 1st, 2017.

In particular, CONTACT aims at raising awareness in the scientific community about the peer-reviewed open access process to large-scale research infrastructures (RIs). The main goal is to cooperate with CEI to enlarge the user basis of CERIC-ERIC and its PFs in non-EU CEI countries (Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Ukraine), by training researchers in writing successful proposals for open access to top-class European RIs. CERIC-ERIC, with its multidisciplinary and multi-technique approach, with the support of CEI will act as “ambassador” for the whole European Research Area.
