Q: What are the different funding schemes available under ‘Science in Society’?
A: 1. Collaborative projects (small-medium focused projects)
• Targeted to specific objectives:
• research and development to generate new knowledge, improve European competitiveness or address major societal needs;
• Clear focus and approach at project level
• Overall work plan clearly fixed for the whole project life
• Major deliverables planned in detail
• No changes expected in work plan and deliverables
• Adequate project management
• Management of the knowledge produced (protection, exploitation, dissemination)
2. Coordination and Support Actions
a) Coordination and support actions (Coordinating) aiming at co-ordinating research programmes or policies. These are carried out by consortia and concentrate their support to networking activities.
b) Coordination and support actions (Support) aiming at supporting research programmes or policies, which can be carried out by individual organisations and which tend to be small-scale focussed activities with very specific, important roles in the implementation of the programme.
