Co-UDlabs workshop at Novatech 2023

The Co-UDlabs consortium is organising a workshop on July 3, 2023 in Lyon (France) to launch its second global call for Transnational Access (TA).

The workshop aims to be a venue for the exchange of ideas and the development of valuable, innovative ideas and approaches that could become the next TA projects to be run at one of the 17 Co-UDlabs’ facilities. During the event, project coordinator José Anta (University of A Coruña, Spain) will present the project and its objectives and will provide an overview of current and finalised TA projects from the 1st TA call (2021). Members of TA user-groups will also be there to talk about their experience and the added value of taking part in the TAs. The workshop will be the perfect venue to discuss with Co-UDlabs researchers and ask all your questions about the opportunities offered by the 2nd Co-UDlabs TA call.

In addition, you can also meet the Co-UDlabs consortium at the project booth located next to the reception and poster presentations area!

Co-UDlabs has published a handy guide to the 2nd global call for Transnational Access proposals, which can be downloaded online on this website.
