EURAKNOS online workshops on the best way to manage a Thematic Network

Time: 11.05.2020

Place: Webinar

Sihtgrupp: Knowledge Innovation Board members


We are happy to invite you to the first presentation of the EURANOS Explorers Guide. As we cannot meet face to face, due to Coronavirus/COVID-19, we have prepared workshops to present it to the KIP and we would also like to involve you in the development of the EURAKNOS Explorers Guide.

During the presentations, you will get to know EURAKNOS’ best experiences from finalised and ongoing Thematic Networks in terms of data collected, how to store data and design a platform, how to communicate and disseminate, and how to manage the multi-actor approach. You will be involved in interpreting the conclusions and you will be able to influence the output of EURAKNOS for the use of EUREKA (and other upcoming thematic networks).
