Passport project - LAPHIA - AAP 2016

We want to fund within LAPHIA passport project (PP) for 1 year in order to validate an original idea before launching a patent or a large industrial project. This kind of project can reduce the overall cost for PI and guarantee a large success for the transfer of knowledge.

We recommend at least having a company that vouch for the market existence for the targeted product technology developed within the project.

PP budgets can be devoted to human potential (1 Post doc or 1 engineer of 12 months maximum[1]) or/and to environment fees (consumables, small equipment[2]) and equipment[3] according to the specific requirements of the project proposed. For more details regarding the eligibility of the expenses, please refer to the part “4.4.Expenditures”.

A passport project is for 1 year.  The project can be extended; a letter has to be sent to the Direction of LAPHIA ( by the coordinator of the project. The reasons of the extension have to be clearly presented.

[1] Post doc salary or engineer salary: 50 000 euros maximum per year.

[2] Small equipment: < 4000 euros

[3] Equipment : > 4000 euros excl. tax.
