i-CONN was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) project funded by the European Commission, under their H2020 programme. The network consisted of 10 Universities and three partner organisations across Europe, and brought together scientists from Astrophysics, Computer Science, Ecology, Geomorphology, Hydrology, Neuroscience, Systems Biology and Social Science.

i-CONN has trained a new cohort of researchers specialized in the developing field of Connectivity Science who will be capable of developing interdisciplinary approaches to connectivity across a range of disciplines and real-life applications in the next five to 10 years.

Connected across the continent

i-CONN has trained 15 young Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to become experts with a unique skill set that includes interdisciplinary scientific techniques, through bespoke training courses and through a series of secondments to partner institutions across the EU.

i-CONN was structured around seven work packages and key research themes:
