MLE on National Practices in Widening Participation and Strengthening Synergies: Thematic Report No 4 - Skills development, information, communication and training

This report focuses on national-level solutions to shortages of information and skills that hold back participation in the EU’s research and innovation framework programmes (FP).


The report surveys the landscape of existing initiatives, and identifies lessons learned through exchanges of experience in five areas: 1) Information and guidance to potential FP participants; 2) Strategies for national positioning in the FP; 3) Skills development and training for research managers; 4) Incentives in the form of small-scale funding for project preparation and rewards for winning; and 5) promotion outside the country of its national assets and opportunities for cooperation.
