EU funding programmes
International funding programmes, especially those offered by the European Union, have continuously increased in significance and volume in the last few years. Scientists at the University of Wuppertal have carried out research as part of these funding programmes for many years.
In order to focus European and national activities, the European Commission has presented the “European Research Area” and the “European Development Area”. The aim is to harmonise the framework conditions of the two areas to simplify cooperation and to harmonise the public image of European development and research systems. A successful application to the EU programmes requires an understanding of the underlying philosophies of the two areas.
In addition, the European Commission has also created a foundation to facilitate the mobility of researchers across Europe with the European Charter for Researchers - Code of Conduct for Employing Researchers.
