The Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation of Georgia disseminates information about the EaP PLUS Project under EU Framework programme for Research and Innovation “Horizon 2020”.

The EaP PLUS Team announces the 4th and last ound of the Call for Grants for Networking in Brokerage Events or Preparatory Meetings. This grant for Networking financially supports the participation of local researchers from Eastern Partnership countries in Brokerage Events related to Horizon2020 and Preparatory Meetings for the development of H2020 project proposals.

Aim of the Grant scheme is to extend scientific networks between EU Member States/non-EaP Associated Countries and EaP countries as well to increase the number of EaP participants in submitted H2020 project proposals.
