29th Call for Proposals: Start of Evaluation Phase

The 29th IraSME call for proposals was open until 30 March 2022 and is now entering the main evaluation phase. We received the outstanding amount of 42 project applications for bilateral R&D collaborations, of which 40 proposals have entered the actual eligibility checks. Participants of the following countries/regions took part in this call: Austria, Brazil,  Flanders (Belgium), Germany, Luxembourg, and Turkey.

Topics or fields of technology chosen by our applicants range from additive manufacturing, carbon fibre textiles, and molecular diagnostics to geodesign, digital healthcare and waste valorisation.

Alberta (Canada) and the Czech Republic were not able to join this particular call.

As a consequence of Russia's war against Ukraine, we jointly decided among all other network partners to suspend all activities with FASIE for the time being, which means that R&D projects with participants from Russia cannot be funded through IraSME until further notice.

For information on our future calls for proposals, please visit the "Current Call" section on our IraSME website or click on the button below.
