The call “Collaboration Projects for Better Health” opens on December 17th 2018
This new call differs from other research funding calls mainly in two aspects; it requires at least two stakeholders in differens fields (academia, health care & industry) to partner up and write a joint proposal, and the project is to include 50 percent co-funding from the applicants. The co-funding can however be in the form of allocated time in kind.
