Combining Research with Technology
What is Enlighten Your Research?
Enlighten Your Research, or EYR, is a programme that promotes the use of computer network resources to foster international research and collaborations. To further promote the benefits of these resources, we challenge researchers to stretch the boundaries of their work and collaborate with other countries enabled by the national research and education network (NREN) infrastructures, services and support.
For qualifying research projects, winning applicants receive additional infrastructure and/or expert engineering support to enable their research, depending on their project requirements. In addition, selected projects also receive free attendance to the annual Eastern Partnership E-infrastructures Conference (EaPEC).
The Eastern Partnership Connect (EaPConnect) project collaborates with leading partners to create this EYR@EaP programme for research communities in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) region.
The Eastern Partnership is a regional and multilateral initiative between the EU and its six Eastern partners: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. The partnership aims to provide support and assistance for reforms in the region in the fields of democracy, human rights, market economy, sustainability and governance.
