If so, take a look at the European Innovation Partnerships!
EIPs act across the whole research and innovation chain, bringing together all relevant actors at EU, national and regional levels in order to: (i) step up research and development efforts; (ii) coordinate investments in demonstration and pilots; (iii) anticipate and fast-track any necessary regulation and standards; and (iv) mobilise ‘demand’ in particular through better coordinated public procurement to ensure that any breakthroughs are quickly brought to market.
The current EIPs are:
- Active and Healthy Ageing
- Agricultural Sustainability and Productivity
- Smart Cities and Communities
- Raw Materials
But what if your discipline is not within one of these topics?
Then take a look at CORDIS.
Here you can search for your topic of interest and find out, amongst other important project information, what has been funded before, results from this previous research and who was involved in the project, which may direct you towards potential partners for future collaborative working. For certain topics, there are also thematic Results Packs, including Securing cyberspace and Independent Living.
If you are thinking of applying to a funding call, from the EU or otherwise, CORDIS might assist by sparking a idea based on a previous project, help you assess the state-of-the-art or inform your choice of potential partners.
Whatever your research interests, check out CORDIS!
Help is also available to BU staff – please contact Emily Cieciura in RKEO to discuss your EU and International funding requirements.
