Share your project ideas and see what ideas others have

30+ ideas for new projects were shared in the expo during 'Europe, let's cooperate!'. You can find a short description of each in the project ideas section. Connect with the people behind them through our community and continue the discussion. Many more ideas were shared in the chat during the event. If you didn't submit your idea before the event, you can still add it to the project idea table and share it with others. 

The best time to work on new project ideas is right now - our first call for project proposals is coming up in early 2022! 

Reach out to new contacts

Events come and go, but networking doesn't have to stop. You can still have a look at the list of 2200+ participants registered for #europecooperates and find new contacts. Browse the list attendees, filter it according to your interests (country, region, themes or activities of interest) and keep up the conversation! 

Stay tuned for more online tools to help you prepare your next project

As you may have heard during the event, we are getting ready to launch our new website in early 2022. New, enhanced tools for project partner search and project development await! The best way to prepare is to complete your own profile right now: check that your personal details are up to date, add a photo, fill in any missing information and get ready to connect with peers from all across Europe.
