To financially support the participation of local researchers from Armenia in large-scale Brokerage events and other similar activities related to Horizon2020 in EU/AC countries. Such events provide an excellent arena for researchers to liaise and develop synergies, the participation therefore of researchers from the targeted countries will increase their opportunities to get involved and be taken onboard in consortia set up in EU/AC countries. It will also allow the researchers to make their institutions and/or their research networks better known.
The Scheme provides grants to researchers for covering travel and subsistence expenses, visa costs and conference fees, which will be reimbursed.
The thematic priorities and events
The thematic priorities of the call are the three Societal Challenges: Health, Energy and Climate Change.
List of events
Please follow these links for the identified events.
The list of events is indicative but not exclusive and candidate researchers are free to identify other events of high importance, which will be also considered eligible if duly justified.
The events must be only those connected to the three Societal Challenges Climate Change, Energy or Health. Preferably Brokerage Events or larger scientific conferences with a brokerage event character should be chosen. Networking possibility is a must and the participation should be justified in every case.
An advance payment up to 75% of the budget may be paid to the Grant recipients (covering travel, accommodation and visa) while the remaining costs (per diem) will be reimbursed upon the return of the researcher and the handing of the participation evidence and related documents (Event Participation Report).
In order to receive the grant, the selected researchers will have to sign a simple Grant Contract with the NAS RA in which they commit themselves:
