Under this instrument, successful South African FP7 / Horizon 2020 / ERAFRICA participants which do not receive full funding from the European Commission for their FP7 / Horizon 2020 / ERAFRICA project costs - as is possible under the FP7 / Horizon 2020 / ERAFRICA funding rules - can apply for a strategic co-investment in their participation and receive funding for part of the remaining projects costs from DST.
Applicants must submit a comprehensive application detailing, for example, the strategic significance of the project from a national R&D perspective. All requests should be drafted using the FP7 / Horizon 2020 / ERAFRICA co-investment funding application template.
Kindly note, DST will now need to enter into contracts with the applicant's institution for all our funding instruments established to support SA's participation in the European Union funded programmes. As a result, it may take up to a month to get a response and receive a contract from us. It is important for applicants to submit applications two months before the planned activity to have enough time to process and arrange payment.
