Frequently Asked Questions
Potential proposers are reminded that they must read the Information Package and the text of the current Call for Proposals, and comply with the conditions therein, before preparing any proposals.
Q1. How many projects will be funded?
No definitive answer can be given since it depends on the outcome of the evaluation of the proposals received and the allocation of the budget available between those considered for funding.
Q2. Can an activity or project for the European Science and Technology Week be localised in just one country or is it a requirement for funding that an activity has to be organised in several countries and if so what is the minimum number?
To be selected for funding a project must have a clear European dimension in terms of: its scientific or technological activities; the public targeted; and the level of collaboration within the project. Preference will be given to projects and initiatives involving at least three mutually independentpartners from at least three different Member States or Associated States. Proposals without a clear European dimension will be rejected.
Q3. Can an activity or project for the European Science and Technology Week be launched in one country during the Week and then move to other countries subsequently?
Proposals will be evaluated primarily in the context of their contribution to the European Science and Technology Week. (See also the answer to question 3).
Q4. When will the European Science and Technology Week take place?
Currently, the European Science and Technology Week takes place in November each year. Since time is required to prepare the activities that have been selected the next call in early 2001 will be for the European Science and Technology Week in late 2002. An important notice concerning the timing and content of the next call will be posted on this website shortly.
