In 2016 EuroMarine launches a single call for four categories of activities.
In order to maximize the number of Member Organizations (MOs) that will receive funds under the 2016 call, EuroMarine limits its financial contribution to successful activities to the below-specified maximum levels. Applicants are asked to find co-funding when necessary.
The elegible categories of activities and corresponding funding levels are as follows:
- Foresight Workshops ('horizon scanning', FWS) – maximum funding: 7,500 €
- EuroMarine Working Groups (WG) or EuroMarine Service Worskhops (SWS) – maximum funding: 7,500 €
- Capacity building and training (CBT), both in the area of science or that of 'transferable skills', with two subcategories
- First edition of new EuroMarine course (CBT-NC) – maximum funding: 10,000 €
- Existing, established course (CBT-EC) – maximum funding: 5,000 €
- Endorsements (E) – maximum funding: 2,500 €
To be eligible, proposals should address EuroMarine priorities, as defined in the 2015 summary text on EuroMarine scientific strategy.
Proposals should involve at least three 2016 Full (paying) Member Organisations of EuroMarine, from at least two different countries. (Please refer to the provisional 2016 membership list and do not hesitate to contact secretariateuromarinenetwork [dot] eu for any contact information).
Activities should preferably be carried out in 2017 and any exemption should be requested and justified in the proposal.
The call budget will range from 100 k€ to 120 k€ depending on final EuroMarine 2016 resources and the number of proposals.
