UNITE Project is a EU-FP7 funded coordination action, gathering 5 institutions that are committed  in increasing the level of excellence of ICT research across an enlarged Europe by promoting active secondment to research teams and strengthening cooperation in community supported research on Enterprise Interoperability (EI), Enterprise Software Applications (ESA), and the novel research domains of the “Future of the Internet”.


The project aims to support the flow of skilled people among universities, research institutes, and business-related companies between countries of the old member states (EU15) and countries of the new members states (EU27). One solution to acquire and disseminate knowledge in such a framework is to meet other partners in multiple environments, during a period of time, depending on the experience of the researchers through this mobility programme.


Besides the secondment programme, UNITE Project will organize targeted workshops and two doctoral symposiums, across an enlarged Europe to build-up synergies and support networking and collaborations.


Researchers, Professors, PhD Students and IT Experts will receive a monthly grant, or the proportional grant depending on the kind of secondment period chosen, supported by the UNITE Project, which value depends on the country where the secondee decides to do his research. Besides the grant, UNITE also supports the way and return travel expenses.
