Strategic partner institution

Strategic partner institution

The strategic foreign partner of the project is a foreign research centre (public or private), which conducts scientific/scholarly research at a world-class level and meets top professional and organizational standards.

The partnership primarily involves the following:

  • joint implementation of good practice on work organization, commercialization of research work results and conduct of research
  • delegating representatives to the IRAP International Scientific Committee
  • research cooperation is a complementary, but not the primary, role of the partner.

Note: Any institution in which the applicant was formerly employed at or is currently employed at can be a partner if it fulfils the criteria.
