Risky projects - LAPHIA - AAP 2016
The risky projects (RP) are small projects with a reduced staff and lasting 1 year. The main idea is to promote potential new breakthrough ideas, with high risk but also high possible pay-off.
These projects will be envisaged as start-up fundings for more ambitious research projects, possibly to be submitted either to the LAPHIA Call for large collaborative research projects and/or national or international funding calls.
RP budgets can be devoted to human potential (1 Post doc or 1 engineer of 12 months) or/and to environment fees (consumables, small equipment) and/or equipment 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 risky project is for one year. However, the project can be extended; a letter has to be sent to the Direction of LAPHIA (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the coordinator of the project. The reasons of the extension have to be clearly presented.
 Post doc salary or engineer salary: 50 000 euros maximum per year.
 Small equipment: < 4000 euros excl.tax.
 Equipment: > 4000 euros excl. tax.
