Research Fund: Innovative Projects

In addition to the funds required to carry out specific projects in the various research areas of PRISMA+, the research fund allows for the internal allocation of funds on a competitive basis. All members of PRISMA+ can submit proposals for new research projects which support the research goals of PRISMA+ and enhance its scientific profile. The funding is based on three criteria: scientific quality of the proposal, scientific expertise of the applicants, and contribution to the PRISMA+ research program. The Steering Committee prioritizes the proposed projects and takes the funding decisions. The scientific council reviews proposals exceeding 40.000 € and may issue a recommendation. Those proposals may only be submitted after a call or in exceptional cases that have to be discussed with the cluster management prior to submittance.
