ERRIN (European Regions Research and Innovation Network)

ERRIN is a network of more than 90 european regions interested in research and innovation issues. The network facilitates knowledge exchange as well as joint action and project partnerships between its members with the aim to strengthen their region's research and innovation capacities.

ERRIN members meet regularly in thematic working groups and at key network events to exchange information and know-how about EU funding and project opportunities, present regional best practices, build transnational consortia and develop joint projects. ERRIN supports projects undertaken by its members and provides them possibilities to participate in the work of Europe-wide innovation platforms.

Thanks to the membership of the East & North Finland EU Office, our regional actors have  free access to the online portal of the ERRIN. The portal contains valuable information on EU projects, calls for proposals etc.

The ERRIN will update the organization of its working groups due to the upcoming programming period 2014-2020. The East & North Finland EU Office is a co-leader of the networks Policy group and participates actively in the thematic working groups based on the needs of our regional stakeholders.
