Call 2018 - Support for Impact

OPENING DATE: 24 July 2018

CLOSING DATE: 24 September 2018

Support for Impact (SIP) projects are coordination and support actions. Research and development activities are not eligible to be funded in SIPs, instead there is a clear focus on dissemination and exploitation activities.

A key requirement is an external request for the work from an organisation ready to take up the outputs of the project and move them on to impact outside the metrology community. The organisation making this request is called the Primary Supporter. Without such a willing recipient expressing support for the proposal and identifying the actions they will take with the outputs of the project, the proposal would have no evidence of the route to impact and should not be funded.

SIPs must be based on research outputs from a completed iMERA-Plus, EMRP or EMPIR Joint Research Project, referred to as the 'Related JRP'.
