Through the years, SIOPE has consolidated strong and fruitful partnership with other research organisations and advocacy groups, both at the national and supranational levels, in order to advance our goals with a unified voice. This is why SIOPE has many times been considered as the ‘natural partner’ when setting a new European-wide project in our field, and asked to participate in important EU-funded projects focusing on research and awareness-raising.
