The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to establish an African cohort of epidemiologists by supporting institutions in sub-Saharan Africa and Europe that provide master’s training in epidemiology and biostatistics, as part of the Africa CDC’s framework for public health workforce development. Master’s courses with practical field research experience is the preferable level of training as it is relatively short and likely to deliver the required numbers and high-quality fit-for-purpose calibre of personnel that are urgently needed in epidemic zones of sub-Saharan Africa.
The financing of joint Scientific Research and Technological Development projects, developed in close collaboration by Portuguese and Indian research teams in the following priority areas of common interest: Biotechnology; Energy; Environment; Sustainable Infrastructures; Climate change; Disaster Management; Marine Sciences and Technologies.
All projects related to the development of S&T solutions against COVID-19 / Pandemia that fall within the areas mentioned above will be encouraged and considered.
Within the scope of the MIT Portugal Program, a call for tenders is open for the award of 40 (forty) research grants, hereinafter referred to as MPP2030-FCT PhD Research Grants, in the strategic areas of MPP: Climate Sciences and Climate Change; Terrestrial Systems - From Oceans to Space; Digital Transformation in Manufacturing; Sustainable Cities; Data Science, applied to previous areas.
A number of projects have demonstrated the successful conversion of aquatic biomass, mainly algae, into high-value ingredients for food applications. Actors in the aquatic and marine worlds are confident that by combining forces they can start converting the many aquatic and marine species and fisheries/aquaculture-industries side streams into food applications at commercial level. The specific challenge is to sustainably scale up the conversion of new and sustainable aquatic and marine sources for human food and contribute to food and nutrition security.
The proposed actions are invited to build on experiences and lessons learned in other relevant projects and programmes. Proposals are expected to demonstrate, depending on the scope addressed, the impacts listed below using quantified indicators and targets, wherever possible:
Primary energy savings triggered by the project (in GWh/year); Investments in sustainable energy triggered by the project in(million Euro); Contributions to policy development and to best practice development on energy poverty; Support schemes established for energy efficiency and/or small-scale renewable energy investments and to be sustained beyond the period of EU-support. Involvement of at least 5.000 consumers per million Euro of EU funding.
The scope of the restricted Call will be to support further research activities in those exceptional cases where it is necessary to enable successful consortia to build on the achievements of their initial action, move onto the next step of the challenge, and maximise the impacts of the initial action results.
A large amount of high-quality health data is collected during clinical studies (interventional and non-interventional), but, beyond the immediate objectives of the study, these valuable data are not used to the extent they merit. Subject to appropriate legal grounds, these data could be used to enrich patients’ healthcare records to improve clinical decision-making and reduce duplication in procedures/investigations.
FTI supports actions undertaking innovation from the demonstration stage through to market uptake, including activities such as piloting, test-beds, systems validation in real-world working conditions, validation of business models, pre-normative research, and standard-setting.
