Pillar 1: External research funding and capacity-building
LEAP-RE is based on 3 programmatic pillars. Pillar 1 focuses on external research funding and capacity-building implemented through open calls for proposals. The calls for proposals are addressed to research and innovation operators (academic teams, companies, etc.) and will focus on the themes identified in 6 roadmaps developed in the programme preparatory phase.
These calls for research and innovation projects are funded by 15 European and African research and innovation funding agencies and by the EU. The coordination of this pillar is ensured jointly by the ANR (France) and the MESRS (Algerian Ministry of Research).
