International Cooperation Opportunities in Horizon 2020

The Work Programme 2016-2017 of Horizon 2020 offers several opportunities for cooperation between researchers and innovators from all over the world. In fact, around one third of all topics of the Work Programme 2016-17 specifically encourage international cooperation or refer to Global Initiatives, like the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP), the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) or the Belmont Forum. In order to facilitate the identification of these topics, the Directorate for International Cooperation prepared a brochure, describing where these opportunities for cooperation can be found, by theme and by country. The brochure is available  online to facilitate and encourage cooperation, by making the information easily available to all stakeholders.

Joint Call for Proposals of Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation and French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS)

05/01/2016 16:54
The aim of the call :  The International Scientific Cooperation Project (PICS) is a scientific project prepared and presented jointly by two research teams: one at the CNRS and (in this case) the other - team of Georgia’s researchers. Over a period of non-renewable 3 years, it aims to consolidate and formalize ongoing cooperation with a foreign partner has already resulted in one or more joint publications. PICS allows the team from a laboratory affiliated with the CNRS (UPR / UMR) receive additional funds (usually between 5,000 and € 7,000 per year) to finance missions, seminars and work meetings. A call for proposals is published annually on the website of the CNRS European research and international cooperation office (DERCI) and simultaneously SRNSF webpage.  The two-stage application process begins on March 1 and finishes on the first week in June. Funding begins at the start of the following year. Before submitting a proposal, CNRS researchers must seek approval from the relevant thematic institute. Once they have obtained it, they can request an application form from DERCI. The foreign partner must simultaneously submit a proposal to their home institution. A provisional budget is to be presented with the research project proposal.    Duration:  36 months. Target Group:  Higher educational organizations of Georgia and France, scientific-research institutes, independent research centers. Call Coordinators:  Mrs. Mariam Keburia, Mr. Nikoloz Bakradze

Cooperation with the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine (STCU) in the frame of TRDI program to support the long-term projects in STEM Sciences

05/01/2016 16:54
The aim of the call : Activities under STCU Targeted Research and Development Initiatives (TRDI) program intend to enhance Georgia’s international scientific reputation, stimulate local expertise, foster the creation of new industries, encourage international partnership and investment and help strengthen science as a national priority. STCU supports participation of former weapons scientists, engineers and next generation of scientists in developing long term sustainable career. The Targeted R&D Initiatives Programme implemented jointly by Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation (SRNSF) and Science and Technology Center in Ukraine (STCU) s upports advanced research in Georgia’s priority research domains such as: Life science and biotechnology; Information and communication technologies; New materials. The STCU and the SRNSF encourage the greatest possible participation of regional organizations and scientists (i.e., those located outside the city of Tbilisi) in the proposed projects. Interdisciplinary projects as well as those which bring together several scientific institutes will have an advantage in the competition. The two institutions provide funds to implement projects within TRDI framework under 50 50% cost sharing arrangement. Target Group:  Successful Georgian scientists working in foreign universities, scientific-research institutes, independent research centers; Georgian higher educational organizations, scientific-research centers and scientists working there. In accordance with call’s guideline and STCU policy, no less than 50% of project participants should be scientists with prior experience in the development of weapons of mass destruction.   Duration: The projects proposed under the Targeted Initiatives Program must be implemented within a period of between 12, 24 or 36 months.   Call Coordinator: Mrs. Khatia Ananiashvili
