Call 10

This project call aims at submitting IBO (ICON, O&O or Cooperatief-PLUS) and SBO project proposals fitting within the framework of any approved and/or running SIM research program.

The outcome of the project should directly contribute to the primary target of the program concerned. The fit of the project  proposal within the program roadmap should be assessed and the program management has to agree with the project application.

SIM wants to stimulate industrial participation in the research programs, therefore IBO project proposals will have a clear advantage in this Project Call.
