Using EU-financed projects to develop the Alexanderson Institute means that a wide range of our activities are financed from external sources. EU projects also have a great added value in that they provide a platform to create close contact between private sector, public sector and well as academia. Furthermore, working with EU projects gives us great opportunities to develop and further deepen international contacts.
EU projects are traditionally directed at public sector organisations that have a responsibility for creating growth. The Alexanderson Institute has setup an innovative model whereby companies can become involved in EU projects without being burdened by the excessive bureaucracy often associated with them.
The Alexanderson Institute model is to support networks of companies by applying for, administering and writing reports upon projects so that the companies can concentrate on the subject matter of the projects. We do this in various ways which include making good use of the CRED, EMC and COMMIT networks. You can read more about these networks under the Networks tab.
