This spring, AMS Institute releases the second Call for Stimulus Projects. The aim of Stimulus Projects is to give new and existing AMS partners support to innovative research that has a strong upscaling potential.
Stimulus Projects should realize short-term research output, which act as a catalyst of a new solution direction, concept or approach. The projects may quickly assess the feasibility of ideas, or seek for a completely new and promising avenue of research and innovation. Stimulus projects aim at generating major follow-up projects (or programs). AMS Institute is able to provide co-funding (in cash) up to 50% of project budget with a maximum of €25.000 (your own contribution may be in cash or in kind).
A maximum of eight (8) proposals will be awarded.
To facilitate finding partners for this call, AMS will organize a Matchmaking event on Tuesday May 24th at the AMS Institute, from 14:00-16:00h. This event has limited capacity. If you would like to attend, sign up before or on May 19th via the online form.
