The funding scheme provides domestic funding required for participation in international collaborations in order to foster the participation of Hungarian organisations in the following joint programmes and initiatives financed partly under the EU H2020 framework programme and partly from member states contributions:

  • Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership (ECSEL)

Participation in this programme contributes to reaching the national R&D targets determined in the EU 2020 strategy, to the coordination of the national R&D programmes of member states and thus to the more efficient utilisation of EU funds spent on research and development. The concentration of funds facilitate the implementation of large-scale research programmes which are, on the one hand, addressing important social problems, and, on the other hand, enhance the competitiveness of European industry.

The objective of the joint programme funded under the call

The Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership (ECSEL) programme promotes the development of reliable, environmentally friendly, smart and complex systems (capable of interaction with humans and other systems, and connecting the physical and virtual space) that meet the needs of society along the entire supply chain from microchips to finished products (car, aircraft) through the international cooperation of industrial actors (including SMEs) and non-profit research centres. Main thematic areas specified by the industry: micro- and nanoelectronics, embedded/cyber-physical systems and smart systems integration.

Deadline for submission

Submissions (electronically) are accepted continuously from the date of opening the online application template until 28 September 2018, no later than 12:00 (CET). Funding will be awarded as long as the budget lasts.

To ensure value-based professional evaluation of proposals arriving in large quantities from the fields of discovery and applied research and innovation, to assess professional reports of funded projects and to prepare policy opinions, the NRDI Office intends to expand its expert pool in all fields of expertise.

Professionals who have registered in the database of the NRDI Office can become responsible contributors, as independent peer-reviewers, to the evaluation process in which the professional quality, novelty content and commercialisation perspectives of the proposals as compared to the requested funding should be assessed as core considerations.

The registration process can be initiated through the registration form of the NRDI Office’s website. Registration is continuously open.

Requested data within the expert registration form include:

  • personal data, contact details (necessary for contracting review assignments);
  • classification of professional skills and competencies and research areas (to get review invitations fine-tuned to your field of expertise);
  • topics of the previously reviewed proposals;
  • present and past jobs, interest networks (in order to pre-screening of conflicts of interest in a given rview assignment), education, scientific titles, most important publications and intellectual works demonstrating your professional experience;
  • language skills.

Professionals once registered in the database of experts may be invited by the NRDI Office to review submitted proposals, to assess professional reports of funded projects and to contribute to policy opinions.

Each proposal is reviewed by several independent experts at the same time. Experts selected from the database to review proposals, to assess professional reports and facilitate expert opinions will be contracted by the NRDI Office on a case-by-case basis. When concluding such a contract experts must declare that the review assignment is not obstructed by any conflict of interest whatsoever. Depending on the competition type, written expert reviews must be prepared in 15-28 work days and submitted electronically via the online review portal of the NRDI Office.
