Wrap-up of SNOWMAN's Consoil 2008 participation now available online

The 10th ConSoil Conference took place from 03.-06. June 2008 in Milan. And the SNOWMAN ERA-Net has been presented at Consoil in the different roles it plays: An ERA-Net project funded by the EU Commission to support the development of the European Research Area, a successful initiative aiming to launch a second trans-national call for research in January 2009, and a funder of 5 joint research projects in Europe.

While the first two roles have been played by SNOWMAN itself during its Consoil Special Session, the latter has been introduced by the funded researchers themselves.

Furthermore, SNOWMAN got the chance to inform a broader audience by presentations during the NICOLE and EURODEMO sessions.

An extra section has been included into this homepage to inform about SNWOMAN's participation of Consoil in more detail. You will also find here downloadable presentations from the SNOWMAN
