  • Chemistry (CHE)
  • Social and Human Sciences (SOC)
  • Economic Sciences (ECO)
  • Information Science and Engineering (ENG)
  • Mathematics (MAT)

Progress Report Template

  • Physics (PHY)
  • Environmental and Geo-Sciences and Energy (ENV-ENE)
  • Life Sciences (LIF)
  • Interdisciplinary proposal

In addition, applicants will be asked to provide keywords (max 100 characters), to further specify the research topic of their proposal. These keywords will enable the Call Secretariat to make the best possible match between experts and each proposal. Applicants who submit an interdisciplinary proposal will indicate this on their application form.

Applications must be made in conjunction with a host organisation in Turkey. To respect the free choice of the applicants, they may choose any research organisation in Turkey of high quality, including but not limited to those in the List of Partner Organisations. In addition, the applicants have a free choice of mentors. Applicants finding their own host organisation should also find their own mentors. The quality of the host organisation and mentors will be reviewed during the evaluation process.

Applicants must fill in an on-line form in the eBİDEB portal, providing administrative information about themselves, the host(s) and mentor(s) and the proposal. It is in this section where the applicants must indicate if they wish to benefit from the flexible mobility rule and they should justify their eligibility to benefit from this mobility rule. Applicants must also indicate their scientific panel.

Applicants are expected to present their proposal in 5 different sections:

  • Excellence
  • Impact
  • Quality and Efficiency of the Implementation
  • CV of the experienced researcher
  • Ethical aspects (if any).

The maximum total length for sections 1 to 3 is 10 pages, plus 1 page for the Start Page, 1 for the Table of Contents and 1 page for List of Participating Organisations.  The CV should include the standard academic and research record (maximum 5 pages are recommended). Any research career gaps and/or unconventional paths should be clearly explained so that it may be fairly assessed by the independent experts. Especially for those wishing to benefit from the flexible mobility rule, a detailed indication of any research and career gaps due to their conditions should be provided and duly justified in order to be better assessed by the experts. There is no page limit for Ethical issues section including the Ethical issues table. When ethical issues apply, applicants must describe these and how they will deal with them before, during and after their research project. Applicants are asked to clearly explain the added value of them implementing their research project in a non-academic host organisation so that the experts will have a better understanding of the ERs career tracks in the industrial environment, relevancy to the dynamics of the industry and capacity of the host organization within the industry
