A maximum of 20,000€ per project will be awarded to support a limited number of pilot studies proposed by researchers from Instruct member countries (BE, CZ, DE, ES, FR, IL, IT, NL, PT, SE, UK). Projects should propose basic or applied research which is preliminary in nature.
The intent of this support is to help researchers develop external funding for projects, i.e. the expectation is that a pilot study will lead to a full grant submission. The funds are expected to cover research expenses but not normally salaries.
