EaP PLUS launches its first cluster grand scheme!
The EaP PLUS project, funded by the European Union, just launched its first cluster grant scheme ! The EaP PLUS Grant Scheme (2017) is designed to enhance EU-EaP research and innovation partnerships through cluster and cluster-like organisation cooperation.
The scheme aims at strengthening clusters in EaP countries, transferring the EU’s – and, when relevant, the EaP countries’ - good practices, and facilitating sustainable inter-cluster cooperation between the EU and EaP countries’ existing or emerging clusters.
The grant finances the cooperation activities between 6 EaP clusters and their European partners. In total, 6 clusters will be financed, with up to 10.000€ worth of spending.
Clusters from EaP countries (Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, Armenia) and a European partner cluster organisation from one of the 28 Member States are elegible for funding only.
The call for applications is open from June 15th 2017 till September 30th 2017.
This is an excellent opportunity for European and Eastern Partnership country clusters looking to boost or being their cooperation activities.

Deadline: Saturday, 30 September, 2017
