NEURON aims to increase the number of research groups from countries that are to date not well integrated in the funding scheme, so called ‘underrepresented’ countries. NEURON developed a Widening Concept comprising different measures to facilitate the integration of ‘underrepresented’ countries. As part of this, consortia that were invited to submit a full proposal were given the opportunity to add new groups from ‘underrepresented’ countries. Thus, a total of six new research groups was added between pre- and full proposal stage.
