The 22nd CORNET – Collective Research Networking - Call for Proposals
CORNET – Collective Research Networking has recently launched its 22nd Call for Proposals welcoming international collective research projects that follow a bottom up approach in supporting SMEs in their efforts towards innovation. The call aims at making international collaborations possible for all those national/regional projects that are eligible to participate in this call (both from Europe and beyond). Project consortia led by SME organisations like associations, clusters, federations or ad hoc groupings of industrial enterprises from at least two different CORNET countries are invited to submit proposals for joint Collective Research projects.
Only projects addressing collective research based on existing funding programmes will be taken into consideration and one of the criterion to be demonstrated is the added value the projects will have on an international scale.
The following types of activities will be funded:
- Industrial research and development
- Applied research and development.
In some countries other activities such as demonstration, technology/knowledge transfer, dissemination workshops and trainings can also be eligible for funding.
Projects with a maximum duration of 24 months will be funded by a grant to the project budget and funding will be allocated according to the rules of the involved national/regional programmes.
The deadline for applications is 28th of September 2016 before 12.00 hrs CET.
More information about the eligibility criteria and the national and regional funding organizations is available at this page.
