  2. To assess WI-WE implications for, and expected impact on, the key dimensions of the ERA Vision:
      • Researchers mobility
      • Research infrastructures
      • Research institutions
      • Knowledge sharing
      • Cross-national research programmes (aka Joint Programming)
      • International science and technology (S&T) cooperation
