APRE was born in 1989 as European Research Task Force as an initiative of the Ministry of Education and Research and a number of public and private entities. Its aim was to address the ever growing request for information on European research funding programmes. Since 1990, APRE has been operating as a non-profit association to serve the public offering free-of-charge assistance to all actors of the Italian R&I system. From the beginning of its existence, APRE has been providing information, training and assistance services related to European research and innovation programmes. In parallel to those activities, APRE also offers assistance to support innovation, international cooperation, data analysis, advocacy and public engagement in all areas of the European R&I. 
The APRE team is composed of 40 experts who work in close collaboration with both the Italian and international communities in order to transform APRE’s mission into concrete value for its associates, partners, and public stakeholders interested in European research. Organised in four departments -institutional relations, innovation, projects, and administration – and in thematic working groups, APRE staff is characterised by its professional and multidisciplinary approach. Thematic experts, project managers, policy officers, professionals in stakeholder engagement and communication, innovation managers and legal and financial consultants work together applying an innovative approach in order to offer services and to co-design activities consistent with the needs of APRE’s associates, addressing at the same time the opportunities offered by the R&I ecosystem.
