Portugal in Europe Research and Innovation Network (PERIN) and Horizon Europe
PERIN results of the
definition and professionalisation of the Promotion Office of the Framework
Program for R&DT (GPPQ). FCT, as one of PERIN's founding partners and
through its Delegates and National Contact Points, will assure the national
representation and the coordination of the promotion of research and
innovation activities related to Pillar I and the Horizontal Activity
(Widening) of Horizon Europe (2021-2027). FCT will coordinate the support to
the scientific and technological community for:
- European Research Council
- Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions
- Research Infrastructures
- Widening Actions (Twinning, Teaming, ERA-Chairs, COST and others)

Below one will find an elementary framework for the ERC, MSCA, Research
Infrastructures and Widening. In the sidebar, it is included access to
supporting documents and relevant links for more detailed information.
European Research Council
Investigator-driven programme supporting frontier research through a
bottom-up, pan-European competition in all fields of science.
Starting Grant (StG) for researchers 2-7 years post PhD.
Consolidator Grant (CoG) for researchers 7-12 years post PhD.
Advanced Grant (AdG) for established research leaders.
Synergy Grant (SyG) for 2-4 outstanding PIs with complimentary
Proof of Concept Grant (PoC) to explore the innovation potential of
the PI's research results.
Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions
Along Individual fellowships, the MSCA help develop training networks,
promote staff exchanges and fund mobility programmes with an international
flavour. Grants provided by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are available for
all stages of a researcher’s career. Fellows include PhD candidates and those
carrying out more advanced research.
Doctoral Networks (DN) (former ITN) for universities, research
centres and other sectors to train researchers to doctorate level.
Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) (former IF) for researchers looking to
give their career a boost by working abroad.
Staff Exchange (SE) (former RISE) for short-term exchanges of
personnel between academic, industrial and commercial organisations
Cofunding of regional, national and international programmes
(COFUND) providing organisations with additional funding for their own
researcher training and career development programmes.
MSCA & Citizens (CITIZENS) (former NIGHT) is an annual
Europe-wide public event dedicated to popular science and fun learning.
Around 30 countries and 300 cities are involved.
The programme includes 5 Destinations (packages of actions aimed at
contributing to its objectives and expected impacts). Each Destination will
be implemented by means of calls for proposals. Each Call for proposals will
include one or more topics.
Destination #1: A well-functioning European Research Infrastructure
Destination #2: Enabling an operational, open and FAIR EOSC
Destination #3: RI services to support health research, accelerate
the green and digital transformation, and advance frontier knowledge.
Destination #4: Next generation of scientific instruments, tools and
methods and advanced digital solutions.
Destination #5: Network connectivity - enabler for collaboration
Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area
A pallet of different funding instruments aimed at i) individual and
institutional connectivity (COST and Twinning), ii) balanced brain
circulation in Europe (ERA-Chairs, and ERA Policy linked to MSCA), iii)
institutional and regional reform and transformation (Teaming and Excellence
Universities), iv) linking science and business (Excellence Hubs and EIC
Accelarator), and v) capacity building and inclusiveness (NCP Support, "Hop
On", Seal of Excellence). Main widening actions described below.
Twinning stands for institutional networking, aimed at strengthening
a specific research field. Widening organisation linked to at least 2
leading research organisations. Projects of 1.5M€ for 3 years.
Teaming to create new (or significant update of existing) centres of
excellence in Widening countries through a coupling process with a leading
scientific institution. Projects of 6-8 years with around 15 M€ funding.
ERA-CHAIRs: bringing excellence to institutions by attracting
outstanding scientists and their teams as game changers to universities or
research organisations. Projects of around 2.5M€ for 5-6 years.
Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST): bottom-up and open
networking projects aimed at individuals, and in all domains of knowledge.
Each thematic network runs for 4 years with an average budget of 0.5 M€.
