Each participant in a funded consortium will be funded by his or her national partner organisation. A total amount of up to €6.4 million has been blocked by the funding partners from Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Romania and Turkey for this call.

Each agency will fund the teams from its own country; therefore the candidates must ensure that they comply with the rules of eligibility of their respective agencies.
