New programme for international cooperation in applied research

The brand new KAPPA Programme focused on applied research and international cooperation is financed by EEA and Norway Grants. It concentrates on collaboration with partners from Czech republic, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Almost 33 million EUR will be distributed between 2020 and 2024.

Projects are expected to last three to four years and have a maximum budget 5 million EUR. The maximum aid intensity per project is 80% of the total eligible costs. About 40 projects are estimated to be eligible for support. The programme is not thematically limited, and project proposals are expected from different areas. A part of the funding (about 5,2 million EUR) will be allocated to the projects with focus on carbon capture and storage. The preferred cooperation model is the participation of an enterprise in cooperation with a research organisation
