Horizon Europe: Call on Research Infrastructure Services - Singaporean entities eligible for funding!


Research infrastructures (RI) are facilities that provide resources and services for the research communities to conduct research and foster innovation in their fields. Horizon Europe includes six calls on RI services to support health research, accelerate the green and digital transformation, and advance frontier knowledge that might interest you.

The closing deadline is approaching soon: 23 September 2021 17:00:00 Brussels time. Hence, less than four weeks to connect and prepare with RI infrastructures in Europe providing trans-national access to researchers or access to research infrastructure. In addition, the participation of Singaporean entities (research infrastructures or researchers) will be funded by the Horizon Europe budget on exceptional basis, to allow for increased international access and services.

[Considering the Union’s interest to make accessible to its researchers the most advanced research infrastructures, wherever they are in the world, legal entities established in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Russia, Singapore and USA, which provide, under the grant, access to their research infrastructures to researchers from Member States and Associated Countries, are exceptionally eligible for funding from the Union under this topic.]

For Research Infrastructures: Eligible to receive EU funding as access provider

- the provision by RIs of trans-national and/or virtual access to researchers as well as training for using the infrastructures, and activities to improve, customise and combine the services the infrastructures provide, to facilitate and integrate the access procedures and to further develop the remote or virtual provision of services
