Thematic Working Group boosts ORs networking

Guadeloupe

Canary Islands

The implementation of the Thematic Working Groups (TWG) should enable ORs to increase their networks and promote Research and Innovation.

Indeed, within the TWG1 related to “health, applied medical technologies, diagnostics and therapies for example, each member has to :

  • Elaborate a list of European institutions that might be interested in exploring the tropical disease research in ORs
  • Elaborate a list of main EU, USA and LATAM collaborators with group members
  • Organize an event to raise awareness on tropical diseases research within these targeted institutions

Thanks to the Forward project, ORs’ experts can gain visibility, with the help of multidisciplinary collaborations, trainings, networking and information about project opportunities.

These precious elements  brought to the TWG to thematic working groups members are key factors to improve the quality and number of their future answer to European proposals.
