INCOBRA has just launched a Call for Expressions of Interest for Brazil-Europe Bilateral Cooperation Networks.
This Call aims to foster and strengthen the mutual cooperation of Brazilian and European R&I actors through the support of bilateral networks on a variety of priority areas (Bioeconomy, Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture; Energy; ICT; Nanotechnology; and Marine Research) by providing a Grant for the implementation of mutual bilateral visits and workshops. The main objective of the Call is to select 5 bilateral R&I cooperation networks.
The INCOBRA project will then provide a series of consultancy services to the selected bilateral R&I cooperation networks in order to accompany their initial steps, guiding and counselling them, supporting their activity, fostering interaction and facilitating their integration together with a non-repayable Grant (total amount of 19,500€ per network) which shall be used for the organisation of working meetings and for travel expenses of their representatives.
These networks could encompass centres of excellences, competence centres or clusters, among other types of R&I networks. Existing R&I networks formed of European and Brazilian organisations operating in the identified R&I priority areas, past consortiums of BR-EU projects that would like to continue working together and European and Brazilian organisations aiming to work together and submitting project proposals for available funding, are the type of networks the project INCOBRA is looking for.
Applicants will have until the 15th of December to present their proposals.
The grant and the consultancy provided by INCOBRA aims to create and/or foster a sustainable STI partnerships between Brazilian and European networks, consolidating a long term cooperation framework.
