EU-CONEXUS showcases its research potential and launches its Research & Innovation Information System
EU-CONEXUS has taken a step towards fostering research and innovation collaboration with the launch of its Research & Innovation Information System. This platform aims to facilitate strategic research information exchange.
The Research & Innovation Information System (hereinafter: RIIS) is purpose-built to cater to the needs of the EU-CONEXUS Research for Society project under the Horizon 2020 program. Its goals cover the development of a portal that not only showcases the research potential within EU-CONEXUS but also offers a directory of the alliance’s research staff, units, infrastructures, equipment, and services.

- Resource location made easy: researchers can easily identify research facilities, equipment, and services offered by partner institutions across EU-CONEXUS.
BENEFITS FOR SOCIETY
- Access to expertise: society gains access to a large network of expertise encompassing over 7,000 researchers from nine European universities, collectively focusing on Smart Urban Coastal Sustainability themes.
- Initiating collaborations: RIIS facilitates the identification of synergies and collaboration opportunities for projects centered around the sustainable development of urban coastal areas.
- Contracting services: society benefits from the ease of locating and engaging external services provided by EU-CONEXUS partner institutions through the RIIS platform.
BENEFITS FOR STUDENTS
- Guiding academic paths: RIIS exposes students to a diverse array of research topics within EU-CONEXUS.
