EUREGIO’S SECOND CALL FOR RESEARCH PROJECTS
In the course of the competition, the Euregio will be supported by the leading Austrian Fund for the Promotion of Scientific Research (FWF), which will be entrusted with the evaluation of the applications and the carrying out of those parts of programs related to Tyrol.
The second call for the Euregio Scientific Research Fund is open to all research institutions in Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino, whose scientists plan to carry out a joint project in the field of basic research. These are, therefore, joint research projects that have a common objective and need to be realized together. The expected duration is between two and three years, the amount ranges from a minimum of 250,000 to a maximum of 500,000 euros.
The projects to be funded will be individualized by the Euregio Scientific Committee in accordance to the international evaluation by FWF. The main criterion consists of the project’s scientific level, so as to promote only excellent, or at least very good, projects. Where several projects are characterized by the same scientific quality (excellent / very good), priority will be given to those projects involving all three territories, Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino. Finally, the call provides that at least one among the promoted projects refers, respectively, to the field of natural sciences, technology, medicine and the humanities, social and legal, provided they meet the standards of scientific evaluation.
The call will close on Friday, February 29th 2016 at 18:00. More information is available online under:www.europaregion.info/research
