Introducing EXPER

EXPER – ‘Excellent peripheries for a strong European Research Area’ is a Coordination and Support Action financed by Horizon Europe. It aims at the institutional transformation of two universities from EU Outermost Regions – the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain) and University of Azores (Azores, Portugal). Both universities will learn through capacity building and international cooperation from the leading Universities of Rostock (Germany) and Calabria (Italy).

Supporting research and innovation excellence

The ultimate purpose of the EXPER project is to enhance the scientific excellence and innovation capacity of the partnering universities and their role as drivers of economic and social transformation in their territories, with a focus on research fields addressing challenges and opportunities offered by the green, blue and circular economy.
