To achieve its goals, EARPA provides to its Members or its counterparts (EU officials and other stakeholders) the following elements:
- An effective EU Representation: a better visibility in Europe thanks to its central point of contact: i.e. its Secretariat based in Brussels available for its Members and other EU stakeholders.
Targeted information on the development of future EU RTD funding programmes and procedures, initiatives for projects and joint programmes, networking activities as well as information on on-going projects of interest. This information is provided thanks to various supports such as newsletters, flyers and other confidential documents, all easily accessible for our members via EARPA intranet.
A platform for discussion and exchange of views for R&D providers through for example its five Foresight Groups and workshops.
- A strong network with the relevant European Institutions and industries thanks to regular meetings such as its annual events and workshops.
- Support or initiation of new networks, projects and consortia by bringing interested parties together and facilitating meetings, thanks to its Collaborative Research Groups.
- Additional public exposure of its members through its communication effort (public website, presentations at events, etc.) towards EU & industrial officials as well as the general public.
