During the next 10 months EPRD will implement „Study on fostering industrial talents in research at European level” commissioned by the Directorate General for Research, Science and Innovation of the EC. The overall objective of the contract is to conduct feasibility study into whether there is a place for additional EU level initiatives in order to increase intersectoral mobility in Europe, and what they could eventually look like.
The study will be implemented in 28 EU Member States, but analysis will also cover associated countries to Horizon 2020 as well as Europe’s main competitors (i.a. USA, Japan and China). EPRD will lead the activities of the consortium consisting of partners from Lithuania, UK and Portugal. The contract value is 291 500 EUR.
