Applications for funds


Members of ENTApP (i.e. scientists associated with one of the Contractors or Participating Institutions) can apply for funds to collaborate with other members of ENTApP. This is usually done by contacting the coordinator of the relevant Working Package. The requests will be reviewed several times a year by a panel of experts. Successful cases will be selected by the ENTApP Board on a competitive basis.

Visitor's Programs - Among the most effective ways of networking a scheme of small-scale collaborative visits is foreseen, of the timescale of one to three weeks for individuals and small teams. The idea is to implement the goals and objectives of the Work Packages and in particular to start new collaborations in connection with related activities within ILIAS.

Please note that, following the rules imposed by the European Commission, the work has to take place in one of the Institutes which are ILIAS contractors. Details about Contractors and Other Participants to the ENTApP activities can be found by clicking here .

Training Sessions - They are meant to provide an organized way of sharing expertise, as well as attracting and training new generations of young researchers and students involved in ILIAS. These sessions will address basically the new potential users of the deep underground laboratories and the gravitational waves infrastructures. It is currently envisaged that they would involve teams of order 10-20 participants and sessions lasting two to three days. These will be held in conjunction with professional workshops in order to improve the interaction of the trainees with the rest of the community. In general these training sessions will be organized in parallel to other relevant International manifestations (Conference, Workshop...), in order to reduce the financial cost and to benefit from the presence of the world experts in various topics of interest.

Other Manifestations - Periodically, the Board of Representatives and the ENTApP Working Groups are supposed to organize specific manifestations. For example, specialized meetings, schools, extended visitor's programs. In particular, an Annual ENTApP Meeting is foreseen. All these manifestations will be presented in the ENTApP webpage as "Incoming ENTApP activities", and can be seen by clicking here .
