The Starting Grant call should open any day now: on 22 Feb it was scheduled to open on 25 Feb (it didn’t) and close on 8 April. The Consolidator Grant call should open on 11 March 2021. The advice is: “We expect considerable continuity compared to previous calls, so we encourage applicants to prepare their proposals”.
Info on open or expected calls is provided here. A dedicated webpage with more complete information on funding opportunities will soon be created on the LIP public website and linked in this newsletter.
The directorate asked for the help of the SC board to identify researchers to help on the revision of LIP’s applications to the PTDC call. Each PTDC should receive comments from two persons: one of the directors and another senior researcher.
2021 meeting with LIP’s international Advisory Board
The meeting will be held (most probably only remotely) on April 29th and 30th
In conclusion, LIP keeps the status of Associate Laboratory, and roughly the 2019 level of funding. However, the rating is clearly below expectations. In the coming days the directorate will submit their comments to FCT in the hope not of greater funding but of a fairer classification.
Below you can find LIP’s application documentation and on the timeline of the call:
A new structure able to host web pages autonomously managed by the owners is now available. This has been a long-standing request.
For long, groups, projects and even individual researchers at LIP felt the need for public web pages that could be fully controlled by their owners, without the need for the intervention of the LIP webmaster. This issue is finally solved.
