Collaborative projects coordinated by researchers from our faculty

Several of the special programmes within Horizon 2020 announce funds for small and large scale collaborative projects within research and researcher mobility. The coordinator has the main responsibility to carry through the project and is the connecting link between the European Commission and the project partners.

Below is the list of H2020 and FP7 projects coordinated by our researchers.
