Cooperation with Mexico - Horizon2020 space call

27/01/2016
The Conacyt-H2020 co-funding mechanism, in place since 2014, has been the first support scheme to put in place by EU international partner countries providing a source of financing "project-by-project participation" to Mexican partners in successful Horizon 2020 projects covering all thematic areas under Horizon 2020.
 
This complementary funding mechanism has the objective of reinforcing EU-Mexico STI cooperation by increasing the participation of Mexican research institutions and companies in Horizon 2020 to work closely with European partners.
 
To this end, the National Council for Science and Technology of Mexico (CONACYT) published the fourth call under the co-funding mechanism covering thematic areas, such as renewable energy, health, environment, ICT and climate change among Others.
 
Within the Horizon 2020 work programme for 2016/17, published in October 2015, a number of topics specifically encourage cooperation with Mexico (see list here).
