The main objective of this Targeted Network is to establish a network for the administrative, finance and legal services in universities, research organizations and related entities supporting researchers involved in the lifecycle of transnational external competition based (in particular European funded) projects in order to exchange experiences and share and develop best practices, encourage knowledge sharing, knowledge transfer and increased efficiency.
Information on the Targeted Network is also available at the official COST webpage. Please find the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) there as well.
