6/13th September 2012 II. Objectives and modalities of the Programme OBJECTIVES enhanced research cooperation between Poland and Norway which should lead to knowledge development and application of research results contribution to reduction of social and economic disparities in the European Economic Area and strengthening bilateral relations BUDGET total budget EUR EUR : for research projects for the Small Grant Scheme MODALITIES of the Programme 1.The Core (5 thematic areas - applied research and basic research projects) 2.The Small Grant Scheme (research projects carried out by female researchers in technical sciences aiming at career advancement (acquiring doctoral/ post-doctoral degree, earning professor title)
6/13th September 2012 III. Types of entities eligible for funding Research organisations as defined in the Community Framework for State Aid for Research and Development and Innovation (2006/C 323/01): research organisation means an entity, such as university or research institute, irrespective of its legal status (organised under public or private law) or way of financing, whose primary goal is to conduct fundamental research, industrial research or experimental development and to disseminate their results by way of teaching, publication or technology transfer; all profits are reinvested in these activities, the dissemination of their results or teaching; undertakings that can exert influence upon such an entity, in the quality of, for example, shareholders or members, shall enjoy no preferential access to the research capacities of such an entity or to the research results generated by it.
6/13th September 2012 IV. Project Promoter and Principal Investigator Projects have to be submitted by consortia comprising at least one Polish and one Norwegian entity. Project Promoter (PP) – an entity formally responsible for submitting the proposal under the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme; PP may only be a Polish entity eligible according to the call. The role of PP is not to lead, but to be formally responsible and to give administrative support. Principal Investigator (PI) – a researcher having a scientific lead of a project submitted under the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme; PI may only be from a Polish entities.

6/13th September 2012 V. Thematic areas of the core modality 4. Social sciences and bilateral relations, including the issues of migration, social cohesion, the role of minorities and the social dimension of sustainable development synergic use of resources new sources of progress and competitive advantage demographic changes research on improvement of effectiveness of public institutions migration
6/13th September 2012 V. Thematic areas of the core modality 5. Gender equality and work-life balance recruitment, evaluation, promotion and retention policies in public and private organisations, including universities organisational approaches to increase participation and career advancement in fields where one gender is under-represented examination and comparison of institutional best practices in gender equality; research structures and activities on gender issues in cities and rural areas, including but not limited to poverty, womens participation in decision-making and public life, equal economic independence for women and men comparison of institutional policies supporting dual career couples institutional issues relating to the creation of a work/life responsive working environment cultural and organisational structures promoting work/life balance, including returning schemes after career breaks
6/13th September 2012 VI. The Small Grant Scheme The scheme provides support for research projects implemented by women in the least feminized area of technical sciences. The aim is to strengthen the competence of female researchers by allowing them to significant progress in their careers. The output gained through the projects should contribute to the completion of doctoral or post-doctoral studies or being granted a professor title. One of the challenges as far as the Polish scientific community is concerned is to increase the share of women, both in terms of the number of the employed in the field of R&D, and in terms of their role in the least feminized areas of technical sciences by taking advantage of their potential and supporting their scientific career development and promotion. Workshops for potential beneficiaries are planned in November 2012.
