Since its inception, EMES has collaborated with international networks gathering researchers working in related fields or networks from geographic areas other than Europe. By creating common initiatives, opportunities for exchange and events with peer networks, EMES not only enriches the quality and relevance of its research but also ensures that researchers from all over the world are brought into the discussion.
