CAMM2 2018 CALL

CAMM2 - Call for High risk projects 2018

CAMM2 will have an annual call for what we define as high-risk projects to boost ideas that go beyond what is described in the research plans for each work package. It is important that the proposal is contributing to the overall aim of CAMM2 and therefore we anticipate applications that qualify within core subjects of the value chain exploration-mining-mineral processing-metallurgy-environment.

The CAMM2 high-risk call has an annual budget of 1.5 MSEK. For 2018, the maximum budget that can be applied for is 750.000SEK, which means that CAMM2 can fund minimum two projects.

Researchers that would like to obtain funding for high-risk projects should write a short proposal, max 8 pages, and submit to the Management. Cooperation projects across the value chain is encouraged.  Applications should be in the format provided by the template below. The proposals can be for projects that run over max 3 years, but approval of budget is done by the CAMM2 Board on a yearly basis, at the first steering group meeting of each calendar year.

Please note that applications for the continuation of  high risk projects currently funded by CAMMfor one year, should include a brief report of the activities so far and the plans for the future.

The decision on funding of ideas will be done by the Board based on suggestions from the directors based on prioritizing of proposals by the executive committee.

For the application the CAMM2 High Risk Project Application Form should be used (attached). Size of characters 12.
