Grant Scheme to facilitate the Participation of Eastern Partnership and Central Asian Countries in EU Brokerage Events

This grant scheme will financially support the participation of local researchers from Eastern Partnership and Central Asian countries in large-scale brokerage events and other similar activities related to Horizon2020 in the EU Members States or Associated Countries. The thematic priorities of the call are the three Societal Challenges, targeted by the project, namely Health, Energy and Climate Change. There will be approximately 6-9 grants (2000-3000 EUR per grant) per country.
The FP7-funded IncoNet EaP and IncoNet CA projects have developed a grant scheme to financially support the participation of local researchers from Eastern Partnership and Central Asian countries in large-scale brokerage events and other similar activities related to Horizon2020 in EU Member States or Associated Countries. Such events provide an excellent arena for researchers to liaise and develop synergies, therefore the participation of researchers from the targeted countries will increase their opportunities to get involved and be taken onboard in consortia set up in EU MS/AC countries. It will also allow the researchers to make their institutions and/or their research networks better known.

The thematic priorities of the call are the three Societal Challenges, targeted by the project, namely: Health, Energy and Climate Change. The events that can be chosen from will be: Networking events, Brokerage events organised by the European Commission, large international events organised by other European networks (e.g Enterprise Europe Network). An indicative (but not exclusive) list of events is given below. Nevertheless Local Partners and candidate researchers are free to identifiy events of high importance, which will be also considered eligible if duly justified.

There will be approximately 6-9 grants (2000-3000 EUR per grant) per country. A simple form for applications is available below. The selection criteria include scientific excellence, good knowledge of English and possibly, the participation in national or international networks. The selection will be made by the Local Partners, supported and approved by the task leader and the coordinator.

Deadline: 31 January 2015
