Training and information actions to integrate Ukrainian research entities into European nuclear research networks
Support will be provided for activities of the Ukrainian ‘National Contact Point (NCP) to Euratom’. Action results are expected to contribute to better integration of Ukrainian research entities into European nuclear research networks.
Scope - the action will support:
- networking activities of research institutes with similar organisations in Euratom Member States and Associated Countries
- outreach activities enabling such organisations to become more closely involved and integrated in pan-European initiatives relevant to all research areas covered by the Euratom Research and Training Programme 2021-2025
The supported activities will be tailored to the nature of the area and the priorities of the organisations concerned. Various mechanisms may be included, such as benchmarking, joint workshops, enhanced cross-border brokerage events, specific training linked to this field and twinning schemes. Special attention will be given to enhance the competence of Ukrainian NCP, including helping acquire the know-how accumulated in other countries. Proposal should aim to facilitate trans-national co-operation between Ukrainian ‘National Contact Point to Euratom’ and other Euratom NCPs and with a view to identifying and sharing good practices and raising the general standard of support to Programme applicants.
Expected impact: the action should assure achievement of deeper integration and improved participation of Ukrainian researchers and research entities in Euratom funded research activities, thereby enabling a broader and more effective mutually beneficial cooperation in the field of nuclear research and training. It would also help to fully realise the potential of Ukrainian research entities regarding their infrastructures, capacities and research programmes.
This grant will be awarded without a call for proposals according to Article 195(e) of the Financial Regulation and the Article 24(4) of Horizon Europe Regulation. Such specific action is considered necessary for improving involvement and better integration of Ukrainian researchers within European nuclear research networks.
