Action Lines

NEST supports three complementary action lines which operate in parallel:


  • ADVENTURE projects are �visionary� research projects that will develop new scientific and technological opportunities in areas identified by the researchers themselves;

  • INSIGHT projects assess new discoveries or newly-observed phenomena which could indicate risks or problems to society;

  • PATHFINDER initiatives are focused on specific, highly challenging objectives in emerging scientific and technological fields, and involve groups of complementary projects.

In addition, NEST SUPPORT actions will be carried out, such as methodological studies and activities to promote dialogue with the research community on emerging scientific and technological developments. Proposals for NEST SUPPORT actions must be directed towards one or more of the objectives specified in the work programme. NEST SUPPORT actions must aim to help the Commission implement the NEST activity.
