GAI info sessions

GAI is organizing a series of workshops on funding opportunities, which wil be held at different departments. Our objective is to promote a closer contact with the researchers and provide them with tools for the development and implementation of international research projects, either in the identification of calls, preparatory phase, submission and first steps after approval.

About Session III - October 2017

On the 13th October, the Research Support Office (GAI) organized an info session concerning budgets for research projects, specially aimed at science and technology managers at the different research units at the University.

About Session II - September 2017

On the 27th September, at the Department of Economics, Management, Industrial Engineering and Tourism (DEGEIT), the Research Support Office (GAI) organized an info session concerning the Horizon 2020 Programme and the Circular Economy.

The workshop was divided into three parts. Firstly, the support offered by GAI to proposals’ preparation and opportunity screening was introduced by Vera Fernandes, followed by Tatiana Costa, who presented the structure of the Horizon 2020 Programme and some relevant tips within this context. Subsequently the Italian Erasmus-trainee from the University of Catania’s Department of Political and Social Sciences, Danilo Distefano introduced the relevant benefits generated by implementing the Circular Economy’s principles, as well as some specific calls within each pillar, for the next period 2018-2020. The last fragment was discussed, again, by Tatiana Costa, where she highlighted the potential opportunities, which can be exploited in the Portuguese context.

This info session was attended by ca.30 participants, mostly professors and researchers from related fields.

University of Aveiro is ready to discover new research-based horizons.
On the 26th July, the University of Aveiro’s Research Support Office (GAI) organized a workshop entitled “Financiamento P2020/H2020 e ERC & MSCA” at the Department of Communication and Art. Tatiana Costa introduced, first of all, the mission and team of GAI, as well as the ambition of the University of Aveiro (UA) to become one of the most relevant stakeholders within the European Research Area, by creating and reinforcing the potential of UA researchers. Subsequently, Mrs. Costa pointed out how GAI carries out day-by-day activities while supporting the UA researchers during the different steps related to the submission of their proposals as concerns the EU Research Funding Programmes, mainly H2020.

On the other hand, Giulia Dario (graduated student at University of Ca’ Foscari) – one of the Italian Erasmus + trainees at the Research Support Office – focused her presentation on the different features of national and European programmes.

Furthermore, the audience - not only Portuguese participants but also foreigners – showed a strong interest and participated actively in the workshop. By the end of September, expectedly, GAI will organize a second workshop, this time based on circular economy and budget issues.
