Acting pursuant to Point 4 (7) of the Council Resolution No 32/2019 of 14 March 2019, the NCN Council has decided to close the MOZART call for proposals on 21 February 2020, at 23:59:59 (Council Resolution No 114/2019 of 14 November 2019).

The MOZART call announcement has been updated accordingly.

The cooperation between the NCN and the FWF will be continued within the framework of the CEUS programme launched by the NCN in cooperation with the funding agencies from Austria (FWF – Austrian Science Fund – Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung), Czech Republic (GAČR – Czech Science Foundation – Grantová agentura České Republiky) and Slovenia (ARRS- Slovenian Research Agency – Javna agencija za raziskovalno dejavnost Republike Slovenije) in line with the Lead Agency Procedure. The aim of the programme is to fund basic research projects in all research areas carried out jointly by research teams from two or three countries involved in the CEUS programme.

In February 2020, an international CEUS-UNISONO call will be launched for research projects carried out in bilateral or trilateral cooperation by the Polish, Austrian, Czech and Slovenian research teams. Under the CEUS-UNISONO call, FWF, GAČR or ARRS will act as the lead agency and perform merit-based evaluation of the proposals. More on CEUS-UNISONO call.
