Networking activities are dedicated to catalyse the mutual coordination and the pooling of resources among the consortium of participants, with the aim of fostering a culture of cooperation between them.
Networking activities will also aim at spreading good practice, promoting common protocols and interoperability, encouraging complementarity and developing and maintaining common information systems, and stimulating the creation of distributed or virtual facilities.
