A new call for proposals has now opened to applications under Priority 1 – Promoting Innovation and Research & Development action.

Organisations intending to submit an Outline Application should discuss their project concept with the Programme Delivery Team beforehand to confirm likely eligibility under the calls. The closing date for Outline Applications is 12 noon on Friday 21 September 2012.
