The goal of the Frontex Research Grants Programme is to support the EU non-profit research organisations and academia in developing breakthrough technologies relevant to border security.
The Programme is designed to fund projects which are innovative, viable and aligned with the Frontex’s mission. During the implementation period, the projects will have to develop and demonstrate novel technological concepts, proof-of-concepts or prototypes.
The Programme is a vital component of the Agency’s strategy to facilitate a dialogue with research organisations and academia and bring promising ideas from the lab to real applications in border security.
The calls that are
currently open for application are published on the Frontex webpage.
