Please save the date for the first Latin American (LA) Information Day, a joint activity of the so called ‘BILAT’ projects which promote European cooperation with: Argentina - ABEST III, Brazil - B.BICE+, Chile - CEST+I and Mexico - EU-MEX INNOVA, funded by the European Union under FP7. Counting also on the participation of Panamá and ERANet LAC the aim is to enhance EU-Latin American Science and Innovation cooperation.
Latin America is one of the emerging regions in technology, innovation and R&D expenditures. Many European researchers and institutions have developed strong research links with LA researchers and their institutions. However, some opportunities within LA federal funding programs are not well- known in Europe, and European researchers and research managers may not be familiar with the specific application processes & grants management procedures required by LA federal research funding agencies. Therefore this workshop will:
Promote awareness of LA federal research funding opportunities for European researchers with specific focus on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Panamá
Strengthen European institutions’ expertise in applying for and managing LA research funds
Provide case studies of research collaboration between LA and European institutions
Grant firsthand information on the 2. ERANet-LAC Joint Call to be launched in December 2015
We are happy to welcome the following experts:
Mónica Silenzi – MINCyT, Argentina N.N. – CNPq, Brazil Lotte Bak Sørensen – CONICyT, Chile Jessica Urueta - CONACyT, Mexico Claudia Guerrero – SENACyT, Panamá Sophie von Knebel – ERANet LAC
The workshop addresses the whole European research community (funding agencies, researchers & research managers, administrators). Registration for the workshop will be free of charge.
