Since June 30, when the Public Call for the Green Program of Cooperation between Science and Industry was announced, the Science Fund has been actively communicating with researchers in order to prepare better and submit a Project proposal within this Program.
During this period, the Science Fund provided support during the preparation of project proposals through digital channels and organized 8 online workshops (online open-door sessions) through a video conference platform attended by 130 researchers. Questions and answers from those sessions were regularly published on the website of the Science Fund so that all researchers have had access to all information. During the preparation of the program, the Fund responded to 51 email enquiries related to the Program and published 115 answers to asked questions on its website.
Every researcher that submitted a Project proposal within the Green Program of Cooperation between Science and Industry received notifications by email about the receipt of the Project proposal.
Submitted Project proposals will undergo the administrative examination, after which Project proposals which meet the requirements of the Program will be submitted for evaluation. The evaluation of projects in both stages will be carried out by foreign experts, according to the criteria and procedures defined by the Act of the Green Program of Cooperation between Science and Industry.
The Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia will inform researchers about the next steps and results of the evaluation via email, as well as on the official website and social networks of the Science Fund.
We would like to thank all the researchers who expressed interest in this program and with whom we had the opportunity to communicate during the period of the open Public Call.
