CONCERT-Japan Photonic Manufacturing Joint Call
submission deadline: 30 April 2014
The second CONCERT-Japan Joint Call is launched on the topic of Photonic Manufacturing. The CONCERT-Japan Photonic Manufacturing Joint Call is open for the submission of project proposals until 30 April 2014 (deadline of 1 pm GMT and 10 pm Japanese time).
The CONCERT-Japan project is an international ERA-NET initiative under the EU FP7, with the objective of coordinating and enhancing the science, technology and innovation (STI) cooperation between the European countries and Japan.
In the frame of the CONCERT-Japan Joint Call, research projects with an innovative dimension will be funded for a period of maximum 2 years in the field of Photonic Manufacturing. The research projects are expected to have mobility and networking dimensions in addition to the core research component.
The overall aim of this call topic is to support scientific research to further our understanding of the complex, multi-scale physical-chemical interactions between light and matter and their related photo-responsive processes, which will lead to the development of next generation materials, devices and photonic manufacturing technologies.
Each project consortium applying for this call should consist of at least 3 partners, 1 from Japan and 2 from two different European countries participating in the call.
The Call will be funded by the budget allocated by each participating national/regional funding organization. Therefore, each participating funding organization reserves the right to apply its national/regional funding regulations.
The national/regional funding organizations participating in this Joint Call are:
• Japan: Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST)
• Italy: Region of Lombardy
• Hungary: Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) (OTKA will only fund basic research)
• Slovakia: Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS)
• Switzerland: Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF)
• Turkey: Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK)
