The Foundation for Polish Science (FNP) invites anyone who is considering applying for the TEAM-TECH and TEAM-TECH Core Facility programmes to participate in an information meeting devoted to these programmes. The meeting is scheduled to take place on 26 April 2017, in Warsaw.

The meeting will be focused on the new funding rules under the Core Facility programme, and a new programme that FNP is offering under the Smart Growth Operational Programme (SG OP) – the Core Facility PLUS programme. Both programmes offer funding for R&D work aimed at creating or developing a research service that will be provided on commercial terms in the future.

The meeting will be held on 26 April 2017 (Wednesday) in the FNP’s offices at ul. I. Krasickiego 20/22 in Warsaw, between 10:00 and 13:15.

The meeting will be held in Polish. In order to register, please apply using the registration form. The registration will be open until 24 April 2017, or until the maximum capacity is reached.

Funding for innovative research under the TEAM-TECH, Core Facility and Core Facility PLUS programmes may be applied for by researchers from all over the world who have outstanding experience in implementing research findings into business practice, or in providing research services or operating research devices for business recipients. The projects do not have to be implemented  only in research units, but also in companies or as science and industry consortia (this option is not possible in the case of Core Facility and Core Facility PLUS). This means that the funding can be used not only by companies who already have R&D departments, but also by those who want to create such departments. The companies may receive financing of up to 80% of the project costs based on state aid rules. Applications for the TEAM-TECH, Core Facility and Core Facility PLUS programmes can be submitted between 20 April and 20 June 2017.

Detailed information on the Core Facility PLUS programme will be published on the FNP website on 20 April 2017, upon launching the competition. If you have any questions, please contact the programme coordinator, Dariusz Łukaszewski, PhD (email: dariusz.lukaszewski@fnp.org.pl, tel.: 22 311 84 25).

* The TEAM-TECH, Core Facility and Core Facility PLUS programmes are implemented using funds from the Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014–2020 (Measure 4.4 Increasing human potential in the R&D sector).
