Also the bases for the sustainability of the network, the design of the future research project and the design of the INCASI International Master. In this phase of the project, based on the contribution of the different groups of the INCASI network, the aim is to agree and define a common research perspective in accordance with the proposed AMOSIT analysis model, as well as planify the sustainability of the Network in the future. In order to join forces in the scientific area and make visible the research advances, the INCASI project participated in the Federación Española de Sociología (FES) Congress that was held in Valencia on July 3-6, 2019. Sandra Fachelli coordinated the Research Committee GT43 "ISA Research Committee 55: Social Indicators" and Pedro López-Roldán coordinated the Research Committee GT42 "Comparative Sociology between Europe and Latin America". Those work groups received more than forty communications each. The fourth phase of the project will end with the last Global Meeting to be held between 20 and 23rd of November 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, with the Principal Responsible Researchers of all the European universities, beneficiaries and partners of the INCASI project. The INCASI network is part of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program of the European Commission, in the Excellent Sciences section. Particularly, it is part of the pillar that aims to promote the transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility of predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). It is about creating strategic alliances between recognized research centers. The project is identified with Grant Agreement No. 691004 and has a financing of 2.3 million euros Specifically, it is based on international academic cooperation, between Europe and Latin America, through the exchange of Research and Innovation Staff (RISE) of the 20 universities that make up the network.
