In March 2024, the Malta Council for Science and Technology has launched the calls for proposals for five Horizon Support Measures to help Maltese entities participate in Horizon Europe.
These measures are:

1. European Research Council (ERC) Support Scheme

This scheme is intended to strengthen opportunities for talented researchers to obtain grants from the European Research Council for exceptional and innovative research based on their ideas within all areas of research. This scheme is further sub-divided into two options, mentoring initiative for support by international experts or proposal writing training.

2. Horizon Europe Networking Support Scheme (NET2HE)

This scheme is intended for Maltese stakeholders to obtain financial support to attend Horizon Europe networking events held abroad to increase the uptake of Horizon Europe submission.

3. Horizon Internationalisation Partnership Award Scheme (HIPAS)

This scheme is intended to support Maltese eligible entities intending to coordinate a Horizon Europe proposal to engage a service provider who will provide support through proposal writing and submission.

4. Post-Doctoral Fellowship Training Scheme for Incoming Postdocs to Malta (PF2MT)

The PF2MT scheme supports travel and accommodation expenses for experienced researchers willing to submit a proposal with a Maltese entity host for the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship call.

5. European Innovation Council (EIC) Support Scheme

The objective of this scheme is to support clients applying to the EIC Pathfinder, Transition and Accelerator and Open and Challenges calls by the European Innovation Council. Applicants may apply for a proposal development or a business coach grant or a pitch coach grant.
