Winners of 'Teaming' projects announced
On 23 November 2016, the European Commission presented 10 new knowledge centres that will be set up with €140 million from Horizon 2020. This will help nurture scientific excellence in nine countries, which are currently less performing in research and innovation (R&I). Each project will receive maximum €15 million from the so-called Teaming instrument run under Horizon 2020, which is designed to facilitate institution building in eligible countries in close cooperation with Europe's leading scientific and innovation powerhouses. The overall budget for these measures is expected to increase during the last three years of Horizon 2020.
The nine countries with the winning Teaming projects are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
