  • to establish a European mutual learning platform based on that objective, connecting all those organizations that are involved in the process, with particular attention to new European member states
  • The main objective is, to promote increased and better regional investment in research through mutual learning, coordination and collaboration between regional policies and initiatives, by applying the following: foresight, benchmarking, networking and coordination activities and exchange of personnel.
