Projects

EARPA directly supports or initiates new networks, projects and consortia by bringing interested parties together and facilitating meetings. However, EARPA is not directly carrying out or managing projects, its members do.

This section gives an overview of some EU-funded projects in which EARPA members are involved. This list is far from being exhaustive as EARPA members are involved in a very large number of RTD projects.
