On this occasion, science and technology institutions that are part of CICyT and science and technology authorities can participate, with the consent of their governments, within the framework of the presentation of project ideas. It is preferable to link the proposal to an ongoing institutional project within the Ministry’s invitations.
The call also includes researchers repatriated by the RAICES program and in-country researchers who are not part of project ideas proposed by municipal and regional governments or CICYT institutions, endorsing some examples from science and technology in the respective jurisdiction. In the case of researchers residing in the country, they must be affiliated with an institute that includes at least 15 trained researchers, and priority will be given to centers with fewer than this number of trained researchers in areas of impact.
This edition will focus on receiving:
