Call for Proposals - Energy international research staff exchange scheme FP7-ENERGY-2011-EXCHANGE Closed!


There is an increasingly strategic need to support international cooperation in energy research, including in the activities of the SET-Plan. Accordingly, this pilot action aims to promote international cooperation through establishing a dual mechanism to support the reciprocal exchange of research staff between:

  • European and US energy research entities;
