CORNET in 2020 – a promising recap  

2020 is considered as a challenging and exceptional year for all of us. Our network had and still must deal with the consequences of this ongoing and unpredictable pandemic – nevertheless we should neither forget nor neglect the positive things which occurred in 2020 as well. CORNET can record many achievements and all in all a successful year as a network.

The CORNET-Calls-For-Proposals – highly successful in 2020

First things first: the 29th and the 30th Call for Proposals in this year have been very remarkable. In total we received 59 proposals. In comparison to the last years, the number of proposals is above average. This reflects our ongoing growth of the network and the high international interest in CORNET – in total eleven different countries/regions participated. In addition to that, also eleven proposals from the 29th call are already supported by CORNET – more proposals are following in near future!

Numerous events – online, but still efficient

CORNET Events are important for the network and for the members – a network can only survive through interactions. This is the reason why it is self-evident that we organized the events considering the circumstances of the ongoing pandemic. The solution: Online Events! We had two Council-Meetings and one partnering event with the possibility to network afterwards online.
