24th Call closed: Number of proposals stable

The 24th Call for Proposals closed on 27 September 2017. The number of proposals submitted by applicants from various countries and regions has remained stable with 21 receipts. Thematically, the international projects range, among others, from the health and renewable energy sector as well as the textile and food industry to aviation and information technologies. In addition to collaborations between European countries and regions, project proposals were also submitted in cooperation with Québec and Japan which recently joined the CORNET as partner country.

In a next step, the CORNET Coordination Office is checking if all applications are valid. Following this, a number of international experts are jointly evaluating the proposals being submitted. The results of the evaluation process will be communicated to applicants in April 2018. In May 2018, the funding of the projects can start.

Next call opens in December

Research funding proposals can be submitted twice a year. If you missed the 24th call, you might want to participate in the next call which opens in December 2017 and closes on 28 March 2018.

For more information please visit the section Calls for Proposals on the CORNET website. The current guidelines and templates for the 25th call will be ready for download once the call has opened in December 2017.
