CEI Science and Technology Network
The CEI Science & Technology Network (S&TN), launched at the beginning of 2004, is composed of sevenTrieste-based research centres, the so called Lead Institutions (LIs), and their partners in the CEI region.
With the aim to strengthen scientific and technological cooperation, the S&TN provides financial support for the organization of seminars, conferences, workshops and training courses. Young scientists from CEI countries, especially non-EU Member States, are offered the opportunity to attend such activities and carry out scientific research on various topics in one of the seven LIs.
The CEI has been focusing on taylor-made programmes such as the CEI–PRAISE Framework Programme to Promote Research and Innovation through Centres of Scientific Excellence and Advanced Research Groups in Member Countries.
