EU Activities at the FIR at RWTH Aachen University
Alongside cooperation projects on a national level, the FIR is involved in numerous projects funded by the European Commission with partners from all over Europe. The EU-Practice is the coordinating body between the research areas within our institute as well as with our European actors and networks. Across all research areas, the EU-Practice supports in the selection of relevant calls for proposals and in the management of the application process as well as in the establishment and administration of our international network. The EU-Practice is a 5-person team from each FIR research area and a full-time officer as coordinator.
Summarized, “the EU-Practice creates the optimal conditions for successful EU applications and a strong placement of the FIR in the European environment."
