will spread expertise and resources, will provide training and mobility of scientists at all levels and will foster lasting collaborations between west and centre-east Europe.
  • - will pave the way toward the creation of the European Research Area, capable of integrating and coordinating genuine, independent and interdependent research programmes.
  • will be able to attract public and private co-funding and positively interact with other non-EU organizations and research agencies.

FP6 NEAT PROJECT SCIENTIFIC REVIEWDate of review: June 30, 2010
  • The decision of restructuring and reassigning the work groups to not more than 4 WPs appears very wise and obviously translated into a more effective overall structure. ………
  • Impressive is principally the successful setup of a clinical trial on timely and very relevant clinical issues,
  • i.e. the setup of a novel database targeting issues such as HCV/HIV co- infection and sexual transmission of HCV.
  • NEAT is about to establish a competent network to address key questions in the context of long term HIV management. The NEAT/ANRS trial 001 may be one of those key studies.
The collaborative efforts seem to have now reached the initially set aims.
  • An impressive record of publications in peer reviewed journals as well as presentations at international conferences speak for themselves - congratulations.
  • Also the principal idea of internally reviewed IGs that stem from within the consortium is judged asexcellent.
  • The consortium has in the meantime produced an appealing public web portal….
41 Partner Institutions
  • 16 European Countries
  • Over 450 researchers
  • 357 affiliated Centers
  • May be the largest NoE ever funded by the European Commission.....
