The 2017 Call for Participation is open for Eastern Partnership research collaborations to submit Enlighten Your Research proposals. The deadline is midnight CET on Friday 7 April 2017.

Winning applicants will get free participation at this year’s Eastern Partnership E-infrastructure Conference, EaPEC2017, in Minsk, Belarus on 27-28 September, organised by the Eastern Partnership Connect (EaPConnect) project. Here the winners will present their submitted research project proposal.

Selected projects will also 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;
  • commitment to an agreed level of resource provisioning and support for 1 year.

This exciting opportunity for research communities in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) region is created by collaboration between EaPConnect and leading partners through the Enlighten Your Research (EYR) programme to promote the benefits of international-scale research and advanced computer networks.
