Preparatory Workshop 'EU-Black Sea Joint Call: Scientific, Regulative and Financial Framework Conditions'

The Black Sea Horizon International Workshop EU-Black Sea Joint Call: Scientific, Regulative and Financial framework conditions. Preparation of Terms of Reference' was organised by the BSH project partner DLR Project Management Agency and took place on 27-28 October 2016 at the Gustav Stresemann Institute (GSI) in Bonn, Germany. The workshop aimed to provide input on different options for a joint call for proposals to the group of potential funding parties.

This workshop in the frame of the Black Sea Horizon project brought together programme owners and programme managers from EU Member States and Black Sea countries to discuss the prerequisites for a joint call for proposals, based on a variable geometry. The implementation of the joint call will occur outside the Black Sea Horizon project and without funding from the European Commission.

The aim of this workshop was to provide input on different options for a joint call to the group of potential funding parties that had been identified as part of  previous activities of the Black Sea Horizon project.

The workshop informed the participants about the scope (technical content, conditions for participation, timelines, etc.) of a possible EU-Black Sea Joint Call and offered a floor to discuss the Terms of Reference needed for its implementation.

Workshop topics included:

  • Exchange of experience in other international ERA-NETs: preparation of joint calls, implementation and outcome;
    ERA.Net RUS Plus: Good practice example;
  • Participation in the Black Sea call: outcome of the survey;
  • Terms of Reference: joint regulation and structure;
