SCOPE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement N°730033
The SCOPE project (Support and Coordination of the Partnering Environment for FET Flagships) aims to answer the challenge of coordination and building of partnerships environment of the two Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships, Graphene and Human Brain Project, to ensure that their visionary and highly ambitious goals are achieved.
SCOPE’s aim is to help create an “ecosystem” where the Flagships Core Projects co-exist and interact with the Partnering Projects and Associated Members by leveraging additional resources that would enable the two Flagships to deliver a coherent approach to Partnering Projects and Associated Members and, ultimately, extend the Flagships’ outreach and ability to benefit the research community in Europe and internationally.
The consortium of the project is composed by FECYT (Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology, Spain) who is the Coordinator, ESF (European Science Foundation, France) for the Graphene Flagship, and EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland) for the Human Brain Project Flagship.
Role of ESF
