The project aims to provide access to research-driven businesses in the Visegrad region to an already existing network of premier large scale research infrastructures (LSRIs). Project partners will be trained and coached to become national contact points and intermediaries. Businesses from V4 countries stand to benefit greatly from free-of-charge measurements and feasibility studies carried out in these infrastructures. FII as coordinator will introduce CZ, SK and HU project partners to the Science Link (SL) network, with support provided by key network leaders. Project partners will each host a national SL meeting to raise awareness & boost knowledge about LSRI services. A promotional campaign will accompany the launch of a pilot edition of the Visegrad SL call for proposals.
