Call for proposals for WIDESPREAD-2014-1 TEAMING H2020-WIDESPREAD-2014-1 Closed!

Objectives

The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020) is implemented by specific programme and work programmes.

The specific objective 'Spreading excellence and widening participation' (Part IV) is to fully exploit the potential of Europe's talent pool and to ensure that the benefits of an innovation-led economy are both maximised and widely distributed across the Union in accordance with the principle of excellence.

Actions

Actions foreseen within this call for proposals include the following topics:

  • WIDESPREAD-1-2014: Teaming. Despite its strengths, the European Research and Innovation landscape presents a lot of structural disparities, with research and innovation excellence concentrated in a few geographical zones. These disparities are due to, among other reasons, the insufficient critical mass of science and centres having sufficient competence to engage countries and regions strategically in a path of innovative growth, building on newly developed capabilities. This could help countries and regions that are lagging behind in terms of research and innovation performance reclaim their competitive position in the global value chains. Teaming will address this challenge by creating or upgrading such centres of excellence, building on partnerships between leading scientific institutions and low performing partners that display the willingness to engage together on this purpose.

  • 11,85 Million EUR (Global Budget)
