The GD for Research and Innovation of the European Commission has launched a call for proposals within its Excellent Science pillar of the Horizon 2020 program.

This action is meant for universities, research centers or companies proposing short-term exchange programs for their staff. Fifty percent (42%) of the proposals of the prior call have been approved, therefore turning it into an excellent opportunity to foster international cooperation activities, also between academic and non-academic organizations (companies or the public sector, etc.). All the topics within Societal Changes are a priority when it comes to Latin American cooperation. The overall budget is 80 million euros. The call for proposals is valid until April 28, 2015.
