Call for proposals - One new EIBURS sponsorships under the EIB Knowledge Programme - 2015 EIBURS - 2015 Closed!


EIBURS provides grants to university research centres working on research topics and themes of major interest to the European Investment Bank. EIB sponsorships, of up to €100,000 per year for a period of three years, are awarded through a competitive process to interested university departments or research centres associated with universities in EU, candidate or potential candidate countries, with recognised expertise in EIB-selected areas, so that they can expand their activities in these areas. Successful proposals entail the delivery of a variety of outputs (research, organisation of courses and seminars, networking, dissemination of results, etc.) that will be the subject of a contractual agreement with the Bank.


 The objective of the research project is to examine how established organisations can best use projects and/or initiatives as the basis for successful radical innovation, and to then develop a range of approaches, common tools and techniques that can support those innovation projects or initiatives.
