Horizon 2020

COST

Cost (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) provides funding for establishing European research networks. A network must be supported by at least five member states. The programme funds, for example, workshop series, conferences and publications. We highly recommend getting in touch with the national contact point for COST before submitting an application.

INTERREG

The INTERREG programmes are financed by European structural funds and support cooperation between different European regions via cross-border partnerships (INTERREG A), transnational partnerships (INTERREG B) and interregional partnerships (INTERREG C). The focus is more on the regional added value of the projects than on research. The University of Konstanz can participate in the programmes „Alpenrhein-Bodensee-Hochrhein” (INTERREG A) as well as „Alpine Space”, „Danube Transnational Programme” and „Central Europe” (INTERREG B).
