The above selected topics don’t mean we are not open for invitations to join consortia on other topics, as long as the consortium and the proposal are solid.

We don’t lead any of these, we join as partners.

Next steps for the upcoming 3 months:

  • reach out to potential partners, existing contacts we trust and want to work with mentioning briefly what topics we are interested in and saying we are open to collaborate on any other topics they are working on if they see fit for our methodology. Set up short meetings if needed. Ideally everyone who was in the team meeting makes this outreach effort.
  • use Cordis database to find some contacts of organizations who previously won similar calls; list them and prepare template e-mails to send out. @ivan @marina
  • organize an event late May or early June, closely linked to the White Paper. The idea would be to present and valorize our methodology in a way that the people who join can easily recognize the potential for their own projects. We invite interesting people who might be preparing proposals. We set up follow up meetings. @alberto (and whoever wants to be involved).
  • attend events (EC webinars, brokerage and networking events) @marina @ivan …share relevant info and follow up with contacts made there.

Hi @marina,
any special reason (apart from interest for the topic, I mean) for the Democ 01.02 The future of democratic and civic participation is no longer included in your list? Do you think is not worthwhile of exploration (perhaps because you already know who’s likely to get it or similar)?

Hi Chiara, it’s because that call will be published in 2022, this list is for those coming up this year :slight_smile:

Very well, so we have time to networking… :wink:!
