In the framework of the Lead Agency agreement concluded on 4 April 2014 between the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) and the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA), and continued by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office as the legal successor of OTKA, this year Hungarian–Slovenian research groups had the opportunity to get funding for joint basic research projects under the Call for Thematic research project proposals based on Hungarian–Austrian and Hungarian–Slovenian international cooperation (ANN_20, SNN_20).

The proposals are submitted and assessed in accordance with the Lead Agency principle: if the amount requested by the Hungarian partner exceeds the amount requested by the Slovenian partner, the assessment is carried out by the NRDI Office. If, however, the foreign partner requests more funding, the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) receives and evaluates the joint project proposal. Any funding from the NRDI Fund is subject to the decision of the minister for science policy coordination (hereinafter: “Sponsor”), so even if a Hungarian partner is assessed positively by ARRS, the approval of the Sponsor is still needed for the joint project to be funded.

Based on the proposal by the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) as evaluating Lead Agency and the decision of the Hungarian Sponsor dated 10 September 2020, two thematic research projects implemented in Hungarian–Slovenian cooperation (SNN_20) have been selected for funding.
