RBI-T-WINNING project is a Coordination and Support measure funded by the European Commission under H2020. It provides funding to support existing research activity like support for travel, initiation of collaborations, organization of events and lectures, and exchanges of best practices with excellent institutions. Intensive exchange of knowledge and experience will be organized with SISSA, CNRS/University of Paris-Sud Orsay, Ludwig Maximilian University and Niels Bohr Institute, excellent European institutes and altogether cover the investigations within theoretical physics. This three year long project started with kick-off meeting on February 4-5, 2016.
