Globalstars Call Brazil 2018


Globalstars Call Brazil 2018 is now open

UPDATE: Matchmaking for Globalstars Call with Brazil 4 - 6 September 2018 (see information below).

This year, Switzerland is participating in a Globalstars Call with selected member countries of the EUREKA Initiative as well as three partnering agencies in Brazil: FINEP, FAPESP, EMBRAPII

The call itself is open for projects from all thematic areas, reflecting the bottom-up approach of the EUREKA Network projects. In addition, there will be promotional focus areas. Switzerland will focus on projects from Micro- and Nanoelectronics; while other countries will focus their promotion on the topics of Energy, Agriculture and Food, as well as Bioeconomy and Raw Materials.

Eligible for funding via grants are project partners adhering to Innosuisse rules, combining an industrial and academic partner on the swiss side of the project. Participants are invited to contact their national project coordinators before submitting the documents in order to check the eligibility of the project idea and consortium and consult on possible alternative funding models if necessary.

With reference to these promotional focus areas of the Call, there will be four matching virtual matchmaking workshops, one for each topic, with interested Brazilian partners. Participants will have the opportunity to present their company and project idea in slots of 7 minutes and get in touch with other participants.

The Call is open now and will run until 31. October 2018. Find more information on the SBFI- and Innosuisse-Homepage and in the document below:
