MCST-TÜBİTAK Joint Call for R&I Proposals

Home Internationalisation MCST-TÜBİTAK Joint Call for R&I Proposals

In 2020, the Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye (TÜBİTAK), signed a collaborative agreement to bilaterally support cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation between Malta and Turkey.

Since then, MCST and TÜBİTAK jointly launched two MCST-TÜBİTAK Joint Call for Proposals to carry out bilateral research & innovation (R&I) projects, in accordance with the framework of this said collaborative agreement.

These Calls are an integral part of the PRIMA Programme, as it aims to support R&I in the three priority areas defined in the PRIMA Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), namely in the fields of

  • Water Management
  • Farming Systems
  • Agro-food Value Chain

The 3rd Joint Call 2023 introduced new Research & Development & Innovation (R&D&I) thematic areas for cooperation:

  • Digital Technologies
  • Smart Manufacturing
  • Health

Successful projects supported through this Programme, will assist researchers and innovators from both countries to strengthen their scientific expertise and network, enabling them to collaborate further in future Calls for funding, including annual PRIMA Section 1 and Section 2 Calls.
