The PES scheme is divided into two segments:
- Universities, university colleges, independent research institutes and regional health authorities whose participation in European R&D collaboration is extensive must apply for framework grants.
- Companies and others not applying for framework grants should submit applications for individual projects. The application deadline is open-ended. Only costs that are incurred after the PES application has been submitted will be incorporated into the basis for calculating costs.
No funding will be available for positioning activities.
