Please be informed that winners of the FIRST TEAM and INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AGENDAS programme competitions may now apply for funding for the purchase of specialist equipment at the research units where their projects are being carried out.
As part of the competition, funding will be provided for the purchase of specialist equipment, understood as a set of testing, measurement or laboratory devices with a low degree of universality and high technical parameters.
As part of the competition, it is possible to purchase equipment necessary for the significant development of a project implemented under the FIRST TEAM or INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AGENDAS programme and/or for the development of the R&D human resources engaged in the project, provided that the unit does not have any equipment that could be used as an alternative, and that gaining access to such equipment in another unit is impossible or unjustified from an economic point of view
The competition will be conducted on an ongoing basis while funds last, starting on 2 October 2017.
Applications are welcome from First TEAM or INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AGENDAS project managers, acting jointly with the research unit where the project is being implemented. Applicants may apply for the funding after they have signed the grant agreement, but no later than 18 months before the end of the project implementation period.
In the competition for winners of the INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AGENDAS programme, the amount requested for the purchase of equipment should not exceed PLN 3,500,000. INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AGENDAS project managers may file more than one application. In the competition for winners of the FIRST TEAM programme, the amount requested for the purchase of equipment should not exceed PLN 750,000 and applicants may only receive funding once. In justified cases, the Foundation may accept applications for amounts exceeding the above limit.
