WBC-INCO.NET Project is finishing on April, 30th, 2014

Today, the WBC-INCO.NET project officially closes. We started in 2008 and we have achieved a lot – we prepared reports and publications, we organised events on different topics by including many different stakeholders from Science, Research and Innovation sector from the region and Europe-wide.  
We supported the Steering Platform on Research for many years and kept you informed via website and newsletter – so far nearly 200 newsletters have been disseminated reaching a great number of researchers and policy stakeholders. 
As already mentioned above, a hand-over strategy is prepared, with which we try to ensure that as much as possible information and value from the 
WBC-INCO.NETwebsite will be transferred to the new project Danube-INCO.NET. This is a project with similar aims to support inte
rnational cooperation in research and innovation, but focusing on the Danube region. 

The new Danube-INCO.NET project newsletter will be sent out together with the launch of the project website – if everything runs smoothly, by the next week. This will allow you to further receive a similar newsletter, as your are used to it – even with no interruption. If you nevertheless wish to un-subscribe from the newsletter, we will include an un-subscription-link in the first Danube-INCO.NET newsletter too.
