Joint Call for 'Innovation' projects
call opens: 31 March 2014 | call closes: 28 May 2014, 17.00 CET (19.00 Moscow Time).
The goal of the call is to create a long-term research collaboration in the field of innovation between EU Member States/Associated Countries and Russia. Innovative research collaboration of a high standard between teams from EU Member States and/or Associated Countries and Russia will be supported through an open competition.
EU-Russia collaborative innovation projects can be funded in research areas thematically assigned to innovative technologies of high utiliza-tion and with a high market potential and of particular importance for the EU as well as for Russia.
By innovation projects are meant joint R&D projects designed to lead to innovative products, services or processes of significant econo-mic and/or societal value. Compared to the rather advanced cooperation between the EU and Russia in the field of basic research, the coop-eration in the field of innovation still bears a lot of potential to be exploited. Against this background this joint activity shall also address applied research and technology development implemented by small sized innovative research performing enterprises in Russia in partnership with universities and/or non-university public or private research performing institutions/companies from EU.
