Capture: EC einfrastructures Head of Unit Kostas Glinos presents the iMENTORS project at the PAERIP conference


A high-level conference on “Promoting Africa-EU Research Infrastructure Partnerships” is taking place on 7-8 March 2013 at the Thon EU Hotel in Brussels, Belgium.  The conference presents the outcomes of the PAERIP (Promoting African European Research Infrastructures Partnerships) project, funded under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). 

Over the past two years PAERIP undertook an extensive analysis of Africa-EU research infrastructure partnerships, including best practices which could be identified from current cooperation and the formulation of recommendations to enhance collaboration.  In this context PAERIP considered cooperation activities such as how to enhance transnational access to research infrastructures for African and European researchers, and the promotion of networks integrating African and European research infrastructures.
