The call is part of Partnership on Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA).
Participants to this call will have to submit a scientific proposal to the PRIMA-IS, that will be evaluated in a peer review process according to the H2020 standard. The successful projects will be funded directly by the PRIMA-IS through the signature of a grant agreement between the selected consortia and the PRIMA-IS. The criteria for the evaluation, selection and monitoring of the project will be done according to H2020 rules. PRIMA-IS will be responsible for the evaluation of proposals. Participation of private entities (in their diversity, e.g. including companies/enterprises, SMEs, start-ups, non-profit organisations, NGOs…) will be encouraged in the research consortia, jointly with public research organisations, universities and end-users. The eligibility check of proposals will be done by the PRIMA-IS in line with eligibility criteria set forth in the Decision (EU) 2017/1324 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2017 (PRIMA Decision).
Calls will be launched following a two stage process and the grant agreement with the beneficiaries will be signed in 2019.
