The aim of the Travel Grant Scheme is to promote exchange between Caribbean and European researchers as well as to encourage contacts between research institutions so that they may explore possibilities for joint participation in the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7).


The Travel Grant consists of two components, both mandatory:

1. The participation of Caribbean researchers at selected 2012 info-days and brokerage events in the following areas taking place in Europe:

  • Health
  • ICT
  • Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy
  • Energy
  • Environment (including Climate change)

2. Visits to specific research centers / institutions with existing contacts or acquaintance between the grantee and an European or Caribbean researcher or research group (expression of interest by the research center / institution which is planned to be visited). The travel grant works as a mechanism to facilitate further networking or even joint proposal writing.

The 2012 EUCARINET Travel Grant Scheme call is open from the 2nd of April 2012 to the 20th of July 2012 with different intermediate deadlines according to  the themes of the events selected by the applicants.
