Associate Partners

NEWCOM# also benefits from the contribution of a number of Associate Partners (APs). Associate Partners are Academic Institutions or Companies that are active in the same research field as the one of NEWCOM#, are not EC beneficiaries under the same Grant, and wish to participate to some extent into the activities of NEWCOM# without receiving any financial support. Two main types of APs are envisaged: Type I, which are those more interested in conducting dissemination-related activities in collaboration with project partners; and Type II, the main aim of which is to conduct research activities in collaboration with project partners. More specifically:

A Type I Associate Partner, usually a (large) European company, will help the NoE disseminating its own research results towards the European industrial environment and will play an important role in the definition of research objectives. The technology roadmap suggested by such APs will be taken into account by NEWCOM# to possibly steer accordingly its own JPA.
