Are you conducting research in the areas of water management, sustainable farming systems, or agro-food chains?
On Tuesday 9 March, the Malta Council for Science and Technology and the Scientific Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) launched the new bilateral call to support cooperation in these thematic areas.
This bilateral call is recognised as a PRIMA Participating State Initiative, aiming to align national R&I policies and budgets to strengthen cooperation of R&I efforts in the Mediterranean Area.
MCST and TÜBİTAK will each be contributing €200,000 to fund 2 R&I projects in these fields – with an overall call value of €400,000.
This bilateral cooperation between MCST and TÜBİTAK is believed to be the first among many prospective opportunities for future collaborative projects between Malta-based and Turkey-based entities.
The MCST call involves a one-stage submission process and submissions are to be received by 17 June 2021.
The PRIMA call’s pre-proposal submission deadline is 21 April at 17:00.
Following these deadlines, scientific evaluations will be conducted and results will be issued starting November 2021.
