SPIN - Supporting Principal INvestigators
With the purpose of promoting impact research and strengthening its attractiveness for the best international researchers, Ca’ Foscari University is investing its own resources on a new initiative: SPIN - Supporting Principal INvestigators. The scope of the call is to receive proposals to fund research projects with a maximum duration of 24 months in all scientific areas available at Ca’ Foscari.
Two measures are foreseen within the call:
P: +39 (0)41 234 8091/8297
Measures of the call
Measure 1 SPIN
It addresses post-doc researchers – holding or not an academic position at Ca’ Foscari - who meet the excellence requirements to submit a research project proposal under the ERC Starting, Consolidator, or Advanced grant calls with Ca’ Foscari as Host Institution.
Measure 2 SPIN
It addresses applicants, holding a position at Ca’ Foscari, who intend to develop collaborative projects that could lead to new research developments and international collaborations and could strengthen their project-design capacities for a possible participation in competitive calls for proposals.
- Online application - Deadline 31st May 2019 4 pm (Rome CET)
Proposals must be submitted exclusively online, in .pdf format and English language, no later than the deadline.
The applicant must attach the Proposal Template, duly completed, and a Letter of Commitment signed by the Director and the Secretary of the Ca’ Foscari Department hosting the research. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
The overall selection process will be held in two steps:
- at step one a Committee appointed by the Rector will assess the development potential of the proposals;
- at step two proposals selected by the Committee will be further assessed for their scientific excellence and applicant’s profile by two external referees each.
Grantees who don’t hold a position at Ca’ Foscari will be engaged on short-term research contract (“assegno di ricerca”) after passing positively an interview focused on impact and sustainability of the proposal.
