The Exploratory Projects programme is designed to close the expertise gaps in the i-sense consortium by bringing in new partners from collaborating institutions.
Calls will focus on key technology gaps in the consortium and the current surveillance and diagnostic needs for our infectious diseases targets, as identified in Flagship 1.
Exploratory projects are intended to be short, high‐risk, new collaborations (3‐12 months), between two or more partners from the i‐sense institutions and will complement the Core Research Programme. Outputs of these projects form the basis of additional grant applications.
The next funding round will be in 2015.
