There are two calls for proposals set up by the STELLAR Network of Excellence:
THEME TEAMS – FIRST CALL FOR PROPOSALS
A STELLAR Theme Team is a network of mid-career researchers from different institutions, whose aim is to explore and analyze collaboratively emerging research topics in the field of TEL. A Team may be a completely new network created around a specific topic of common interest, or composed of researchers who have already worked together on a certain issue (e.g. at a workshop or within a longer project).
The mission of a Theme Team is to share and integrate competences, methodologies and ideas already developed. The Teams are a means to integrate European research units in the field of TEL, but also competences coming from entreprises and institutions not included in the STELLAR network.
INCUBATORS – FIRST CALL FOR PROPOSALS
STELLAR is launching an Incubator Programme, aimed at supporting promising early career researchers with mobility or “incubation scholarships” to spend some months in another research institution or enterprise with the aim of either fostering the incubation of new ideas/projects, or exploiting new prototypes/services/approaches.
