[CALL] BRIDGE Early Stage


Deadline: 2016-05-17 16:00

This funding instrument launched in 2013 is designed to provide funding for scientifically excellent projects which are carried out by consortia of partners involved in scientific research and industrial commercialisation.

BRIDGE Early Stage programme focuses specifically on the funding of cooperation projects at very early stages of industrial research and has the following objectives:

  1. To further develop and transfer basic research findings to industrial application and to initiate and extend international research collaborations between science and industry.
  2. To intensify research performance in the field of high-level scientific research and to integrate companies into international networks at very early stages of industrial development.
  3. To use the existing human resource potential for industrial research by facilitating the transfer of experts from scientific to industrial research (intense involvement of doctoral students and post-docs in projects).

The call is open for all topics and scientific disciplines.
An interdisciplinary approach in the definition of the project will contribute to a positive evaluation.
