With the contract “ Support to EU-EaP Research and Innovation Cooperation – phase 2” the European Commission supports a successful participation of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic Moldova and Ukraine in the EU’s Framework Programmes and the European Research Area (ERA). Therefore, researchers and innovation actors from the EaP countries are assisted in the preparation of applications to H2020 (last calls) and to Horizon Europe. The contract builds up on the Success of Phase 1 and is implemented by the International Cooperation Service Facility of the EC.

As a first action the European Commission invites researchers and other stakeholders to participate in Virtual Trainings on the upcoming Horizon 2020 Green Deal Call, which will be launched Mid-September 2020. The first virtual training on the Green Deal is scheduled for 18 September 2020.

In addition, several targeted actions are planned to give the EaP Countries a Kickstart in the new Framework Programme Horizon Europe. It is planned to organize one Horizon Europe Info Day and one Proposal Writing Camp (back to back) in each EaP Country in Spring 2021. Moreover, expert consultations (via web) will be planned and implemented for up to 6 researchers in each of the EaP countries aiming to apply to the upcoming Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe calls. All actions will be organized in cooperation with the EaP countries’ coordinators of National Contact Points for Horizon 2020/Horizon Europe.
