EaP PLUS will implement a flexible single Grant scheme providing funds for either the invitation of EaP researchers by scientists in EU MS/AC to jointly develop H2020 applications or the participation in Brokerage Events (BEs) in EU. The Grant scheme will be open for applications on any Societal Challenge
Task 2.3: Enhancing contacts: Grants for networking in Brokerage Events of Preparatory Meetings
The previous INCO-NET EaP project provided two type of Grants for attending Brokerage Events or for ‘twinning’ among research teams to prepare H2020 applications. These Grant schemes were considered to be an effective tool for building up new scientific networks and for participation in consortia applying for Horizon 2020 projects.
Building on the acquired experience the present EaP PLUS project implements an even more flexible single Grant scheme providing funds for either:
- The invitation of EaP researchers by scientists in EU MS/AC to jointly develop H2020applications.
- The participation in Brokerage Events (BEs) in EU.
The Grant scheme is opened for applications on any Societal Challenge. Young and women researchers are supported wherever possible, without however compromising the evaluation objectivity.
Withing the frame of the project so far 3 calls has been announced from the project’s starting date:
- 1st call until November 2017: https://www.eap-plus.eu/object/call/50
- 2nd call until May 2018: https://www.eap-plus.eu/object/call/123
- 3rd call until November 2018: https://www.eap-plus.eu/object/call/183
The last call of Grants for networking is now open until May 2019: https://www.eap-plus.eu/object/call/240
This task has a 60.000-euro budget.
