Latin America (LA) is one of the emerging regions in technology, innovation and R&D expenditures. Many European researchers and institutions have developed strong research links with LA researchers and their institutions. However, some opportunities within LA national funding programmes are not well-known in Europe, and European researchers and research managers may not be familiar with the specific application processes & grants management procedures required by LA national research funding agencies. Therefore this workshop will:

  • Promote awareness of LA national research funding opportunities for European researchers with specific focus on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Panamá
  • Strengthen European institutions’ expertise in applying for and managing LA research funds
  • Provide case studies of research collaboration between LA and European institutions
  • Grant firsthand information on the 2. ERANet-LAC Joint Call to be launched in December 2015

The workshop addresses the whole European research community (funding agencies, researchers & research managers, administrators). Registration for the workshop will be free of charge.

Pre-registration is required here – until 15 November 2015

Further information on workshop, agenda and speakers will soon be available on B.BICE+ website.
