To be published, partner searches should be linked to the topics of our Working Groups and refer to calls for proposals in the framework of EU funding programmes.
The partner searches can be published by everyone but seen only by ERRIN members. It allows our members to create consortia all year long, even when brokerage and project development events are not organised.
If you are not a member but would like to publish a partner search, please contact Agnieszka Wieczorek at [email protected]. You will receive a template and when it is filled in and sent back to us, we will upload it to the website for you.
ERRIN's noticeboard is a place for more general notices and enquiries, you can, for example, post a job vacancy or a call for a speaker. The noticeboard is also used to announce calls and to voice and collect preliminary interest in specific calls, proposals in an early-stage or a partner looking to join an exisiting consortium. This is also used by the ERRIN secretariat to gather expressions of interest from members for project proposals.
From time to time the ERRIN secretariat may change uploaded partner searches to noticeboard posts if the project proposal is deemed to be in the very early stages of development, for example, if there are multiple calls listed, there is not yet a concept note prepared for the proposal or it is more a call for expressions of interest rather than a search for partners in a preexisting proposal.
You can upload a noticeboard post here.
The WG meetings are at the heart of ERRIN’s activities. This is where our members meet regularly to exchange information, present regional good practices, build new partnerships, develop joint projects, network, and much more.
