Cooperation on Research, Development and Innovation
We offer expertise in R&D projects to understand various phenomena and trends in communities and to development respective solutions. We currently seek partners for RDI projects in community research, technology usage and security, sustainability and resilience.
We can support research by collecting user needs and requirements, developing and conducting surveys, analysis, simulation, modelling and training.
Project Writing, Seminars and Training at CESERE
We also offer training and seminars in situation awareness, knowledge management, project management and project writing and financing.
