LIL researchers explore the regional research programme
Gintarė Rinkevičiūtė, a junior research fellow of the Law Institute of Lithuania (hereinafter – LIL), and dr. Jolanta Apolevič, Project Administrator of the International Relations Office of LIL, took part in the Launching and Matchmaking Event of the Baltic Research Programme, held on 25 October in Tallinn.
The event was aimed at acquainting researchers with the specific features of the 2014–2021 Baltic Research Programme (e.g. requirements for applications, financial support for research projects, scientific research implementation, etc.). Researchers who attended the event had an opportunity to find out about the priority lines of research selected for Estonia’s call and also find potential partners from the Baltic states and donor countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) with whom they could submit project applications and take part in the Baltic Research Programme.
It is a joint research programme of three Baltic states (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia) financed with the funds of the European Economic Area (hereinafter – EEA) (Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Norwegian Financial Mechanisms 2014–2021. The programme is aimed at consolidating the research potential of the Baltic states, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, enhancing regional cooperation and filling the gap between national research funding and European Union structural support.
