Creation of a “Scientific network of excellence” in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region among universities, public research bodies and international research bodies to reinforce the capacity for action, attractiveness and competitiveness at a national and international level of the institutions


Support for the development of international agreements, cooperation agreements and projects in the sectors of research and innovation, which involve the institutions belonging to the scientific network of excellence, first of all inside the strategy areas of the European Union for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) and of the European Union Strategy for the Adriatic - Ionian Region (EUSAIR)


With a view to strategically boost collaboration activities at the European and international level in the field of research, innovation and technological transfer, the Regional Government signed and has been implementing an Agreement with the DG - Joint Research Centre (JRC), the research centre of the European Commission which supports European policies, contributing research and scientific evidence to the decision-making process. The Agreement is a framework instrument which makes it possible to promote and facilitate further operational agreements between the Institutions belonging to the regional Scientific and Innovation System and the JRC for the development of shared initiatives, also with beneficial effects on the regional territory.
Through resources from the European Social Fund, the Region supports the mobility of researchers across JRC research centres.
