1)  Objective

The Science and Innovation Network and the British Embassy Bratislava invite proposals and concepts for projects for a new research security programme for Europe. The UK Government is implementing a range of measures to support the UK’s research sector to make informed decisions to address research security risks in international research collaborations. To support this work in Europe, the UK Government’s Science and Innovation Network has secured funding for a new Research Security Programme. The programme will seek to use project funding to bolster the research security and integrity of UK research collaboration with its European partners (particularly that relating to critical and emerging technology), including by ensuring alignment of our approaches.

This call invites proposals and concepts under one of the following three output areas (though there is no limit on the number of individual proposals or concepts that can be submitted). The three outputs are set out in more detail on the next three pages.

– Output area 1 aims to find local partners that can contribute to and advance the emerging evidence base of research security risks in a particular country, region or ecosystem, where those risks are expected to be most pertinent to the security of UK research collaborations.

– Output area 2 aims to partner UK and local actors in a particular country or ecosystem to advance understanding of research security risks and how to mitigate the risks in commercial R&D ecosystems (and how that relates to policy and academic approaches), utilising UK industry guidance on research security, and focused on areas of commercial R&D that are expected to be most pertinent to the security of UK research collaborations.

– Output area 3 aims to partner UK and local actors in a particular country to cooperate practically to mitigate research security risks in academic and policy approaches, utilising UK academic guidance on research security.
