Networks awarded funding within the 8th JPIAMR Joint Call: JPIAMR-VRI Network Call 2018

Eight networks have been awarded funding within the JPIAMR 2018 call for transnational networks “Building the Foundation of the JPIAMR Virtual Research Institute.” Each funded network will receive €50,000 to establish expertise clusters to identify research community needs and develop ideas to form the foundation for the JPIAMR Virtual Research Institute (JPIAMR-VRI).

The call was launched in May 2018 and supported by ten research-funding organisations from JPIAMR member countries. Fifteen applications were received, involving 15 coordinators and 323 partners. In total eight transnational networks were granted funding for projects lasting one year.
