COST Action ENTER (CA17119) calls for applications for Virtual Mobility (VM) Grants. The grants aim at promoting virtual collaboration as a complement to traditional ways of collaboration within the research and innovation of COST Action ENTER. This mechanism intends to stimulate virtual collaboration among the members.

The following eligibility criteria apply:

  • Applicant(s) are COST Action ENTER participants with a primary affiliation to an institution located in a COST Full or Cooperating Member country or MC Observers from a COST Near Neighbour Country.
  • The applicant(s) shall inform the MC about the aim of the VM Grant and how its outcomes will generate benefits to COST Action ENTER, actively contribute to the activities and overall objectives of the Action and submit a report at the end, to be approved by the VNS manager on behalf of the MC.

The selection of successful grantees will be based on contributions to the overall objectives of COST Action ENTER, the strategy on the virtual networking of COST Action ENTER and the implementation of the COST Excellence and Inclusiveness Policy.

A maximum of 6 Virtual Mobility Grants can be awarded. Each Virtual Mobility Grant cannot exceed EUR 1 500.
