Ice acts as a contact point and facilitator for EU research funding instruments – providing first information for scientists regarding the EU research framework programme Horizon 2020 and ERASMUS+. In the case of concrete project proposals, ice can offer targeted assistance and indicate useful contacts because of established links to EU counselling services (e.g. NKS and KoWi).
In order to disseminate information on EU funding in the area of educational research and educational science, ice has repeatedly organised so-called information days in Brussels. Scientists were thus given an opportunity to communicate with people working for the European Commission and gain insight into EU research funding structures. Participants also received practical hints and strategies for submitting successful proposals.
