The Call for Participation is open for Eastern Partnership research collaborations to submit Enlighten Your Research proposals - deadline Sunday, 12 May

EYR@EaP is a programme that promotes the use of computer network resources to foster international collaborations, and accelerate the research and discovery process. To further promote the benefits these resources to researchers, we are challenging researchers to stretch the boundaries of their science and collaborate with other countries to perform experiments enabled by the national research and education network (NREN) infrastructures, services and support. 

All research, and arts and humanities disciplines are invited to submit proposals, and we would especially like to invite researchers working in cybersecurity, digital cultural heritage, machine learning and artificial intelligence to submit project proposals from the Eastern Partnership region, which includes Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. 

As well as collaboration in scientific research fields, we now add the possibility for co-operation in the area of musical performance, artistic research and education. 

Example infrastructure services and resources that can be requested through and EYR@EaP2018 programme include (but are not limited to)

- Network services

- Cultural heritage digitisation

- Cloud resources

- Compute resources 

- Guidance on open data and open science with  <> OpenAIRE

- The opportunity to participate in relevant EaPConnect training and events.
What are the benefits?

The final projects for EYR@EaP2019 will receive:

- Support and advice on the use of network services and end-to-end network connectivity.

- Connections to e-infrastructure resources through the EaPConnect Partners.

If your final proposal is selected for the EYR@EaP2019 program, you (the main applicant) will be invited to go to the Eastern Partnership E-infrastructure Conference EaPEC2019 and will be able to present your research project at this conference.

The submission for the initial project proposal is very light-weight and will close on 12 May 2019

The first draft proposal is submitted electronically by answering these questions in an online form:

1. What is your primary research objective?
2. Do you need to collaborate with other researchers in different countries?
3. Presently, what technology do you use in your research?
4. In the next 1-2 years, what technology could you use to accelerate your research?

The First Submission Proposal can be completed online!

Interested persons will follow mentioned address and will find the needed link (in case of nay other modifications).

We kindly ask you to submit a proposal if you are a researcher that:

1. Wants to collaborate or already collaborates internationally;
