General description

The call intends to finance aid for the preparation of proposals for R + D + I projects in transnational collaboration led by Spanish research groups aimed at the calls for the European Union Research and Innovation Framework Program for the period 2014-2020 (H2020) and the period 2021-2027 (Horizon Europe).

In addition, this call includes the possibility of requesting financing for the preparation of proposals for Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) and grants convened by the European Research Council (ERC), type "Starting Grants", « Consolidator Grants ”,“ Advanced Grant ”,“ Proof of Concept ”and“ Synergy Grants ”and their equivalents in Horizon Europe. It is about encouraging the attraction and retention of scientific talent and internationalization and facilitating the participation of young researchers with relevant and innovative scientific-technical contributions that, although they lack links with any entity likely to be a beneficiary or have a temporary relationship that does not cover the entire period of duration of the action, are likely to qualify for the aid of the calls of the ERC.
