The’EU-EaP Twinning Grants’ is the third and last call for proposals for ‘twinning’ in the framework of the the IncoNet EaP (International Cooperation Network for Eastern Partnership Countries) project. The intention is to boost the participation of newly associated countries in Horizon 2020 consortia.
The main goal is to identify EU and Eastern Partnership cooperation teams and to support the preparation for proposals of open and upcoming calls of the Horizon 2020 Work Programmes focusing on the three societal challenges: ‘Climate Change’, ‘Health’ and ‘Energy’.
At the same time, the call will be open to the other Eastern Partnership countries as well (apart from Armenia and Georgia, these are: Azerbaijan, Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine). The new twinning projects will receive financial support for the organisation of preparatory meetings of research teams wishing to apply for Horizon 2020 funding.
Successful twinning projects will address open or forthcoming calls in the 2016-2017 Work Programmes for Energy, Climate Change and Health.
The support will be given in the form of lump sums of 2,000 Euro for each twinning project.
The deadline for submitting proposals is the 30th of September 2016.
