Fund for Incentives 2017

The CASEE Board invites all potential project leaders of initiatives in education, research and capacity building that include a minimum of 3 CASEE members (of different countries!) to submit proposals for promising new initiatives in line with the overall network objectives and stipulated areas of cooperation.

In 2017 we have the golden opportunity to support two projects with 8.000 € each (depending on regular membership payments). This year educational (e.g. curriculum development, summer school ….) and joint research projects (incl. joint doctoral projects) are eligible for funding.

Deadline: February 12th, 2017

Projects supporting the EU strategy for the Danube Region and having a bio-economic focus are especially welcome.

Supported activities

The fund could e.g. cover

  • meeting costs (although video-meeting or use of ERASMUS staff mobility funds to cover meeting costs are encouraged)
  • salary costs (only for additional staff with specific tasks in relation to the proposed project)

The CASEE Fund for Incentives will not fund ongoing activities. A project may therefore not receive CASEE funds for more than 3 years.

The first year the CASEE Fund for Incentives may co-fund 50% of the budget;

the second year 30% and the third year 15% of the budget.
