Our Projects

Projects are one of the core businesses of this Network as they create opportunities for our members to mingle, brainstorm, exchange, research and propose creative solutions. They enable young researchers to work together with a team of people from different backgrounds.

Members are welcome to join existing projects at any time or start new ones.
