Following the completion of the submission of proposals at the 1st deadline of the BRIDGE2HORIZON Programme, the Research and Innovation Foundation (RIF) informs any interested parties about the submission of Proposals until the 2nd deadline, 15 December 2023, 13.00 local time. Proposals have to be submitted through the IRIS portal.
The call budget for this period is €1 200 000, and the maximum funding per project is €150 000.
The “BRIDGE2HORIZON” Programme aims to strengthen the capacities of Cypriot R&I entities and promote scientific excellence in specific thematic areas and fields of the Smart Specialization Strategy for Cyprus (S3CY) for the period 2023-2030 which are in turn aligned with the thematic priorities and challenges that the EU seeks to address in the context of upcoming Work Programmes of the EC’s Horizon Europe Programme for Research and Innovation. By extension, the Programme also aims to increase the coordination of collaborative projects and the leadership of pan-European networks by Cypriot entities in proposals submitted in Pillar II – Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness and the European Missions of the Horizon Europe Programme.
The present Call will be co-financed by the Republic of Cyprus and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), in the frame of the Operational Programme «ΘΑλΕΙΑ» 2021-2027.
Entities eligible to participate in this programme include Research Organisations, Enterprises and Other Organisations, while the Host Organisation must be a Research Organisation or Enterprise.
The documents for the current Call for Proposals (Call Documents) are available on the IRIS portal under the announcement of the Call.
