Estonia and Italy pledge scientific collaboration
A cultural, educational, scientific and technological cooperation agreement between Italy and Estonia was signed for the first time on 5 January.
In force until 2008, the agreement provides for researcher exchanges, sharing of scientific information and documentation, collaborative projects, cooperation between institutions and organisation of joint events.
As part of the agreement, nine joint projects have been selected for funding. For each project, one short term or long term stay will be financed annually. The projects address a wide range of scientific challenges, including: methodologies for enhancing the reliability of digital systems; posture and movement in children with cerebral palsy; econophysics models for chaotic and complex social-economic systems; and the impact of climate change on agricultural forest ecosystems.
