EBN and IASP have already a long-lasting collaboration in co-organising events and being the voice of their members to the European Union. In 2016, together with the Committee of the Regions, the European Commission and EARTO, the two associations organised an event about smart specialisation in Europe and few years before both associations organised their annual congresses together in Nantes (France).
During the meeting the two CEOs looked at the future and agreed in aligning and reinforcing positions towards the EU, such as exploring synergies in the research project arena. Both associations will work together to find out potential outcomes for their members and support them on their internationalisation of members.
