General description

Spain, through the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, participates in transnational consortiums, both in the European Research Area and internationally, through the signing of agreements and memoranda of understanding in which it undertakes to support international collaborative projects of a high scientific-technical level and in which the participation of Spanish research teams is relevant.

In this sense, the "International Joint Programming" R+D+i Projects articulate the active participation in the European Research Area and in international initiatives of the agents of the Spanish science, technology and innovation system, trying to help the creation of transnational research groups with the necessary critical mass to confront the challenges of society whose global dimension means that they cannot be tackled only on a national scale.

Specific goals and activities financed
The purpose of this action is to finance Spanish research teams that have successfully participated in joint transnational calls within the context of the European Research Area or other international actions in which the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities participates through agreements and memoranda of understanding, in specific thematic areas, and which demonstrate scientific excellence and the added value of international collaboration when facing society's challenges.

These grants may only finance direct costs, in the form of marginal costs, including staff costs, small equipment, consumables and other costs related to the objectives of the project.
