Participate in international research networks
Networks provide a stepping stone to international cooperation. Taking part in a formal network enables you to work together with your professional colleagues in other countries, with people who have backgrounds in different disciplines and with representatives of other sectors. If you wish to participate in international projects, networks can help you to open doors more easily. The same applies if you are trying to find partners for your own project or to participate in an application for Horizon Europe funding.

Participating in a regional EU network can help you to find partners and increase your insight. You can also apply to the Research Council for support to establish a regional EU network.
COST – for individuals with national funding in any sector and area
COST is a European research and technology collaboration with participation from 38 countries, as well as Israel as a cooperating country. Open to participants from all sectors and subjects. The purpose is to build networks by solving a common problem ("COST action"). Relevant for researchers and non-academics with project funding, at all career stages.
MSCA RISE – for academic personnel or employees in other sectors
Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) is for personnel in academia or other sectors who are looking to work in a network and exchange knowledge. RISE is one of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions under Horizon 2020, and applicants must be part of a project group (consortium) to be eligible for funding.
