PRIZE - INNOVATION SOFT
|Publication date||2014-01-07||Deadline Date||2014-04-16 +17:00:00 (Brussels local time)|
Within energy research, fusion encompasses innovation in the domains of physics and technology in a wide variety of specialisations. The researchers in Europe are constantly challenging the science and improving the technology thereby creating the conditions for innovation, much of which can be exploited in other science and industrial sectors for the benefit of European society. A fundamental basis of the Euratom Programme complementing Horizon 2020 is to support innovation. In this context the researcher plays a critical role. This prize is being offered to highlight and reward the excellence in innovation that can be found in the fusion research programme as well as the quality of the researchers and industries involved.

Q. I have just had a look at the call summary and I note the requirement that the "participant benefitting from Euratom financial support" does this mean that work done under commercial contracts funded by ITER IO (as opposed to F4E) would be ineligible?
A. Contracts that you have with ITER IO are eligible as we financially support the organisation.
Q. Would PhD research done under EPSRC funding in the UK also be ineligible?
A. If it is 100% supported by National funds then it is not eligible. It is necessary to confirm that Euratom has funded part or all of the research.
