EU - Eastern Partnership countries cluster cooperation grant scheme

The project 'STI International Cooperation Network for EaP Countries Plus (EaP PLUS)' aims to stimulate cooperation between researchers from the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries and EU Member States and enhance the active participation of the EaP countries in Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.

The EaP PLUS project has set up a Grant Scheme that is designed to enhance EU-EaP research and innovation partnerships through cluster and cluster-like organisation cooperation. In total, six grants of up to 10.000€ are offered to EaP clusters or cluster-like legal entities or organisations. The grants cover the expenses of the cooperative activity of the EaP and their EU partner clusters and are allocated on a competitive basis following the evaluation by the EaP project representatives.

Close to 30 applications were received in response to a specific call and the results of the evaluation are expected to be announced soon. This is a great opportunity for cooperation between Europan cluster organisations and cluster-like organisations from Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia and Armenia.
