Grant opportunity to launch a new project with European and Ukrainian partners

The 7th Framework Programme (FP7) for Research and Development of the European Union can help you to set up new multilateral scientific projects with both European and Ukrainian partners. In July 2011, a call in the field of NANOSCIENCES, NANOTECHNOLOGIES, MATERIALS and NEW PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES will be launched with a deadline to send proposals in November 2011.

This is the opportunity for you to participate and to be funded by the EU to launch a multilateral project between you, other European and Ukrainian researchers. The BILAT-UKR project is granting researchers who have FP7 projects ideas to answer this call, who need to meet new European and Ukrainian partners and get together to prepare a proposal.

The BILAT-UKR project offers:
  • 15 Grants for European Researchers to go to Ukraine and meet (travel costs)
  • 10 Grants for Ukrainian Researchers to meet you and other partners in Ukraine (travel costs)

One or two meetings can be held either or both:

  • before October at your convenience
  • at the International Conference "Functional Materials-2011" organised in Crimea (Ukraine)  on October 3 to 8, 2011. Link to the conference:  http://icfm.net.ua/

Deadline to apply: June 15, 2011 by completing the application form.

BILAT-UKR will take the granting decision by June 27, 2011.
