The WAITRO Secretariat held an RFP Workshop from July 10th-12th at Schloss Birlinghoven, the Headquarters of the WAITRO Office Germany. Throughout the workshop issues such as how to further engage our members in each region or how to strenghten and expand the network of our Global Innovation Family, were discussed. Furthermore, one day of the workshop was as a kick off for WAITRO to potentially apply to three Horizon 2020 projects. For these projects more WAITRO partners are needed. All opportunities will be open for applications on SAIRA in September.
