The application form will be accessible from 05 January 2018 and the deadline for application is 15 January 2018. For more information, please visit www.assembleplus.eu.
The COFUND scheme aims to stimulate regional, national or international programmes to foster excellence in researchers' training, mobility and career development, spreading the best practices of Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
This will be achieved by co-funding new or existing regional, national, and international programmes to open up to, and provide for, international, intersectoral and interdisciplinary research training, as well as transnational and cross-sectoral mobility of researchers at all stages of their career.
The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) wishes to enter into a service contract for a study on ‘Areas of particular environmental interest in the Atlantic’. The main objective of this study is to prepare a strategic environmental plan (SEP) for the Atlantic area beyond national jurisdiction, and to propose a representative network of areas of particular environmental interest (APEIs).
On August 1, 2017, a number of JPI Oceans member countries will launch a joint call for preproposals to study the environmental impacts and risks associated with seabed mining.
