L’appel SME Innovation Associate sera lancé prochainement. Une opportunité très intéressante pour les PME puisque le dispositif leur permet de financer le recrutement d’un PhD pour un an.
Vous trouverez ci-dessous quelques informations complémentaires sur les objectifs de l’appel :
This SME-led pilot is an innovation capacity building action to provide a grant at European level to visionary SMEs that can demonstrate that the skills required for a particular innovation idea are not within reach for them at national level (for example because the required skills are not available or not affordable for SMEs). SMEs are supported to employ a highly skilled experienced researcher (referred to as an ‘innovation associate’) for a continuous period of one year. The innovation associate’s task will be to explore, during the course of his/her contract, the potential of their innovative idea and turn it into an innovation project.
SMEs that are awarded a grant are obliged to employ an « innovation associate » for a continuous period of one year.
During the period covered by the grant, the Innovation Associate must work exclusively on the project described in the grant agreement.
The following criteria will have to be met by the associate: i) PhD holder (or equivalent), ii) an expertise in line with the job requirements as outlined in the vacancy notice; iii) compliance with transnational mobility criteria as defined in the mobility rule of the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA).
La deadline pour candidater est le 15 janvier 2020
