Welcome to Match4Cooperation!

In the scope of Ulysseus European University, we have delivered a unique social network that allows the Ulysseus research community to exchange on their work and collaborate on European Union calls and other public or private opportunities.

Our aim is to connect all Ulysseus academics, raise an equal level of awareness about EU research calls for projects and to promote research mobility within Ulysseus.

Users can access Match4Cooperation through the web application available for Android and iPhone or through the web version.
