MemBridge - European Project - 2009-2011

EMH coordinated the Membridge project. Membridge was a bridge between Europe & Russia via membrane technologies. The objectives of Membridge were twofold:

- increase contacts between European & Russian/ NIS* researchers in public research laboratories & industry;

- set up a long-term strategy with a structured programme to develop joint projects in research & education.

Membridge was a Coordination & Support Action funded by the European Commission. The project started in May 2009 and lasted 2 years.

What happened next:

Relations are close between European and Russian researchers! The latest event demonstrating this willingness to work together took place in June 2014:

A French-Russian roundtable took place at the Kuban State University, Krasnodar, on June 18, 2014. The topic of the roundtable was "On fundamental research in the framework of international associated laboratories and international research networks: record, stakes, foresight".

The event was held within the framework of the EU-Russia Year of Science.
