Three calls have been published in response to the launch of the programme:
- call for applications for summer school support: The INTAS summer school programme aims to stimulate a larger participation by young scientists from the NIS in internationally acknowledged summer schools, to involve them better in the international scientific community and to promote contacts between young scientists from the NIS and the INTAS Members.
-. call for proposals for infrastructure actions: An INTAS infrastructure action is a technical project in response to the deteriorating situation in the infrastructure in the NIS: It aims to support the maintenance or the establishment of scientific infrastructures in these countries.
- call for proposals for INTAS strategic scientific workshops: Bringing together the scientific community, the scientific workshops help INTAS set research priorities and define its strategy . They are also instruments in the INTAS Sixth Framework Programme (FPN) NIS Information Network (ININ). The workshops should engage the participants in in-depth and forward looking discussions about promising scientific research topics and potential areas of cooperation, and aim to define future scientific priorities.
