Outline

The TEAM programme offers grants for international-level breakthrough research conducted by outstanding scientists working in research teams. Scientists with a body of work that is recognized in the world and original scientific achievements may apply.

What is funded

Funding can be obtained for R&D projects that contribute to solving the most important scientific problems on a global scale or responding to important challenges facing contemporary society. The results of the projects should influence the country’s social-economic development and fit within the scope of National Smart Specialisations [NSS]. In exceptional cases, using a preference for NSS, the Foundation may award funding to projects on subjects not mentioned in NSS if they have substantial application potential or could help solve an important socio-economic problem.

Participation of a foreign scientific partner in the research is also mandatory.

Offer

The TEAM programme offer grants worth approx. EUR 850 k. Funding is awarded for a period of 3 years (with the possibility of extension for another 2 years). These funds can be allocated, among other things, to salaries, stipends, training and internships under personnel development as well as covering the many other costs connected with R&D work, including tasks that are contracted out (sub-contracting).

Duration

Funding is awarded for a period of 3 years (with the possibility of extension for another 2 years).

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are those researchers (regardless of nationality) who have at least a PhD degree as well as research experience confirmed by international achievements, who intend to include young researchers – students, PhD students or young doctors (postdocs) – in their team.

For the duration of the project, the project manager (principal investigator; PI) shall be employed at the unit, with a commitment of at least 50% of a full-time employment for the purposes of project realisation. In justified cases the applicant may apply for lower commitment for project realisation (but no less than 30% of full-time employment). In such cases the application has to include extra information and documents related to the deputy project manager (deputy-PI) permanently overseeing the team’s work. If the project will be carried out by a scientific-industrial consortia, the applicant has to assign at least 50% of full-time employment to the project and may not appoint a deputy.

 

The programme is co-financed with the support of the Smart Growth Operational Programme (PO IR).
