The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic plans to announce a call for proposals in the DELTA 2 programme on 25 June, focusing on the support of applied research and experimental development and innovation. The objective of the DELTA 2 programme is to support projects of international cooperation between enterprises and research organisations in order to increase the amount of concrete results of applied research, which are expected to be later implemented in practice.
Applicants in this call for proposals can include enterprises and research organisations. However, one of the partners has to be from the country where the foreign partner agency is based (specifically, the countries are Brazil, South Korea, Vietnam, Israel, China – localities Jiangsu and Zhejiang, Taiwan, Canada – provinces Alberta and Québec).
A necessary prerequisite for the projects is achieving a certain type of result, such as a prototype, functional sample, software, patent, industrial or utility model, etc. The subsidy applies to staff costs, scholarships, costs of sub-supplies and other direct costs.
The maximum amount of support of one project within this call for proposals is up to 74% of total eligible costs, based on the type of research activity and type of applicant.
The deadline for submitting project proposals has been set to 22 August 2019.
