Horizon 2020: How to Obtain Grants for Russian-European Studies

Horizon 2020: How to Obtain Grants for Russian-European Studies

The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 offers scientists around the world opportunities to develop fundamental knowledge and innovation. Most notable, it provides access to international expert knowledge and research infrastructure. But the rules for participating in the Horizon 2020 programme restrict direct funding for scientists from a few countries, including Russia. As a result, Russian researchers started to lose interest in participating. In order to resolve the situation, a delegation of the European Union to Russia, with the support of the Ministry of Science and Education of the Russian Federation, conducted an information session on participating in Horizon 2020, which was held at ITMO University. Participants had a chance to learn about the top-priority fields of scientific cooperation between the EU and Russia, the financing mechanisms for Russian organizations, and rules for writing and submitting tender applications, as well as to personally ask questions to the experts of Horizon 2020
