Experiences in international Programmes
Achieving a high rate of international collaboration is one of the RBI’s ultimate goals. The Institute is currently involved in international projects and collaborates with a number of international partners such as CERN (Switzerland), Jožef Stefan Institute (Ljubljana, Slovenia), Joanneum Research (Graz, Austria), Hungarian Academy of Science Institute SZTAKI (Budapest, Hungary).
Started with 2 FP5 projects, RBI is currently the Consortium member of 20 EU FP6 projects, such as SEE-GRID-2, EGEE-II, EURONS, LPAMS, NonCodDNA, INCOMAT, BIOCAPITAL, RBI-AF, AMS-14C, ReCompSols, HEARTFAID. Until 2010, RBI signed 8 EU FP7 contracts: CLUNA, EGEE III, SEE GRID SCI, UNCOSS, Preparing DARIAH, SPIRIT, HadronPhysich2, SOWAEUMED. In few of them RBI is in the role of Coordinator.
Beside EU Framework Programme, RBIs scientists also have great experience in international programmes funded by other scientific organizations: ESF - European Science Foundation, ERC - European Research Council, US NIH - National Institute of Health, US NSF - National Science Foundation.
