SIM Open Call 2020

SIM Open Call 2020 is open for project proposals fitting within the framework of any approved and/or running vertical SIM Program.

The outcome of the project should directly contribute to the objectives and roadmap of the Program. The fit of the project proposal within the Program roadmap has to be assessed and the Program Management has to agree with the project application. 

From budget year 2020 onwards, all projects will be filed electronically. This has an impact on the filing procedure which is in a transition phase.

Please inform SIM of the project idea before starting to work out any detailed proposal.

This will enable the SIM team to guide you through the total procedure which will be followed up by SIM in more detail than previously.

Please be aware that throughput time of proposals is dependent on the project type (and budget). Those consortia that want to make sure their project is funded on the 2020 budget are recommended to announce the project idea before 1 May 2020 so that the project can be filed in time.

We cannot guarantee that projects filed at SIM later than 15 July 2020 will be decided before the end of 2020.

For any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us on projectbeheer@sim-flanders.be (link sends e-mail)
