Remember, you may be eligible to apply for one of the proposal preparation grants currently available from different public bodies. There are three different calls for this type of grant:
- National, through the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad.
- Regional, through the Conselleria d’Educació, Investigació, Cultura i Esport de la Generalitat Valenciana.
- Local, through the Universities, which offer funding for their research staff:
– Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche
– Universidad CEU Cardenal Herrera
– Universidad Católica de Valencia “San Vicente Mártir”
Many of these grants cover the following expenses related to proposal preparation: organisation of meetings, travel expenses, accommodation, daily allowances when meetings are abroad, subcontractors for specific services (such as consultants, mentors, proofreading) and participation in relevant conferences. They usually do not cover personnel expenses.
We can help you find existing calls for these schemes.
