The EaP PLUS Team announces the 3rd and last round of the Call for ‘Grants for networking’ in Brokerage Events or Preparatory Meetings. The grants for networking financially support the participation of local researchers from Eastern Partnership countries in Brokerage Events related to Horizon2020 and Preparatory Meetings for the development of H2020 project proposals. The 3rd round of the scheme continues to give special priority to applications concerning SPIRE calls which are explicitly encouraging participation from EaP countries.
The aim of the Grant scheme is to extend scientific networks between EU Member States/non-EaP Associated Countries and EaP countries as well to increase the number of EaP participants in submitted H2020 project proposals. For this end. The scheme will financially support the EaP researchers from:
- Research entities e.g. research institutions/organizations, higher education institutions etc.
- SMEs and Industry
- Local authorities
- Civil Society
The scheme will fund participation to large-scale Brokerage Events and similar activities related to Horizon2020 as well as to Preparatory Meetings for developing project proposals targeting selected thematic calls within H2020.
In this scheme particular attention will be given to applications related to preparation of proposals addressing the SPIRE which are explicitly encouraging the participation of EaP partners into the proposals. For SPIRE calls see page 62 in this document.
