The Projects Seminar 2015 organised in Madrid on March 18-20 brings together the projects funded in the framework of CHIST-ERA, and the funders (the research funding organisations in CHIST-ERA). The main objective is to contribute to the exchanges between the projects, and to facilitate the follow-up of the projects by the funders and the review experts. In this context, the objectives of the seminar are:
- Remind the project partners of the CHIST-ERA Follow-up objectives and process and more generally about the expectations of the funders;
- Gather impression about the funded projects, meet in person and listen to the researchers presenting their projects;
- Strengthen the scientific communities related to the topics of the CHIST-ERA calls and support effort toward interdisciplinary research.
As a further objective, the seminar contributes to the assessment of CHIST-ERA calls.
The projects presentend arise from the 4 first calls of CHIST-ERA; they fall in the scope of 8 different topics. The presentations are grouped by topic and the sessions gather topics close to each other, as summarised in the table below. The full programme is downloadable in PDF format.
