Dec. 15, 2021

Following this year’s success, the GÉANT Innovation Programme is coming back next January to support innovative ideas from the Community!

What is it?

As part of the GÉANT Community Programme (GCP), the GÉANT Association will reserve again EUR300k to support an Innovation Programme for specific research projects to be carried out by the GÉANT Community, i.e. GÉANT Member NRENs, universities, research institutions/institutes or other such legal entities to which a GÉANT Association Member NREN provides services.

The call for proposals will be launched for research project funding of up to EUR30k, for a duration of no longer than 9 months. This year, funding was awarded to ten winning projects in Hungary, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and United Kingdom in the areas of multimedia, networks, trust&identity, education, clouds, security, and privacy.

Who can apply? 

The Innovation Programme will accept applications from member NRENs from the GÉANT Association or legal entities from one of its ‘connected institutions’, including universities, research or education institutes or institutions connected to an NREN.

Which research topics will you consider?

Any subject area or topic providing that it falls within GÉANT’s Community remit! For example, proposals can draw upon areas such as networking, cloud, security, trust & Identity and education.
