We are a network of professionals who share a common vision:
to enhance the quality and impact of EU projects in the fields of education, training and research.

IDEAS events are the ideal platform for successful participation in European cooperation projects.
The event is a unique opportunity to match partners and ideas and learn about the main EU Funding Programmes.

We believe in:

We create new and dynamic ways of collaboration across countries and sectors,
fostering synergies and mutual learning.

We value the diverse perspectives, approaches and methods of all actors involved in EU project management,
respecting their differences and affinities.

We achieve high quality and performance standards in implementing actions through EU funding schemes,
ensuring their relevance and impact.

We facilitate access to transnational and European cooperation fora, support capacity building of newcomers,
exchange and match-making of good practices and cooperation opportunities.

We consolidate cooperation ties within the network to ensure its long-term sustainability,
promoting active participation and a sense of ownership,
valuing the diversity and potential to grow together.
