Target group: Researchers and research managers from Austria and the Westbalkan countries

Language: English

The Western Balkan Region – in the broader sense South Eastern Europe – is an important European region for Austria not only commercially but also due to existing scientific collaboration and related issues. Both the historical and social relations, and the massive investments of Austrian companies, are deepening and intensifying co-operation in the field of science and research.

The Westbalkan Science Day concentrates on three thematic domains: Social Sciences, Economics and Business Administration as well as Information Society Technologies (IST) and consists of two parts:

In the “Morning Session” Information will be delivered concerning current and future funding possibilities, i.e.
· Austrian Science and Research Liaison Offices (ASOs)
· Southeast European Era-Net (SEE-ERA.NET)
· Cooperation in Innovation and Research with Central and Eastern Europe (CIR-CE)
· 7th Framework Programme for RTD

In the “Afternoon Session” Researchers will work in parallel workshops with other participants on new project ideas and build up partnership networks for future research co-operations.

Practical aims are to establish and promote networking activities (partnering), as well as to strengthen existing co-operations between researchers from Austria and the Westbalkan countries for further research activities.
