"EaPConnect" announces "Enlighten Your Research" contest

Call for Research Proposals for Enlighten Your Research, the successful international program for researchers, now open until March 16, 2018!

EYR@EaP2018 is a programme that promotes the use of computer network resources to foster international collaborations and accelerate the research and discovery process. To further promote the benefits of these resources to researchers, EYR @EaP2018 challenge researchers to stretch the boundaries of their science and collaborate with other countries to perform experiments enabled by the national research and education network (NREN) infrastructures, services and support.

All research, and arts and humanities disciplines are invited to submit proposals, and we would especially like to invite high-performance computing users and researchers working ineHealth and cybersecurity to submit project proposals from the Eastern Partnership region.

Example infrastructure services and resources that can be requested through the EYR@EaP2018 programme include (but are not limited to):

• network services

• cultural heritage digitisation

• cloud resources

• compute resources in collaboration with PRACE, PSNC and SURFsara (if collaborating with a European or Dutch institution)

• guidance on open data and open science with OpenAIRE.

The final projects for EYR@EaP2018 will receive:

• support and advice on the use of network services and end-to-end network connectivity;

• connections to e-infrastructure resources through the EaPConnect partners.
