By S&T projects are meant joint Research and Development (R&D) projects undertaken by a partnership of institutions (‘consortium’) designed to produce new knowledge through fundamental, experimental and/or theo- retical scientific research, whereby each team of the partnership actively pursues specific objectives with a view to pooling the results to contribute to common, well-defined objectives.
Teams applying for funding must be eligible for funding by their respective national funding organisation. They can be research and higher education entities, research and innovation performing SMEs, or other entities eligible for funding according to respective national le- gislation.
Eligible project consortia must comprise project partners from at least three different countries, of which at least one team is from Russia. Applicants who are non-eligible for funding can join any eligible consortium submitting a proposal on their own expenses.
Proposals will be submitted and evaluated in one-stage.
The duration of a project is at least 24 months but should not exceed 36 months (depending on the involved Funding Parties).
For detailed information about the respective national eligibility and funding criteria, you are strongly recommended to contact your respective Contact Point before submitting your proposal.
