The CSF is a partner, along with 15 EU and Latin American countries, in the ERANET-LAC project. Under the ERANET-LAC second joint call, the CSF will provide partial funding for ICT projects, in Barbados only, on a competitive basis to one or two companies. More companies may be funded if more funds become available.
Start-up and small companies (less than 25 employees) only are eligible to apply for these grants. Overhead costs are not reimbursable under these grants. Preferred projects are in “ICT for Smart Cities” and “ICT Health”. Period of performance can be more than 1 year but less than 2 years.
Details of the ERANET second joint call can be found at http://eranet-lac.eu/Joint_Calls.php, and the specific rules for the Barbados solicitation can be found here.
