General description

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

In this sense, the «International Joint Programming» R&D 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, aiming to help the creation of transnational research groups with the critical mass necessary to face the challenges of society whose global dimension means that they cannot be addressed only at national level.

Specific goals and activities financed
This action is aimed at financing Spanish research teams that have successfully attended joint transnational calls in the context of the European Research Area or other international actions in which the Ministry of Science and Innovation participates through agreements and memoranda of understanding, in specific thematic areas, and that demonstrate scientific excellence and an added value of international collaboration when facing the challenges of society.

These grants may only finance direct costs, in the form of marginal costs, and among them, personnel expenses, small equipment, fungible material and other expenses related to the objectives of the project.
