Other international research programmes

Other European R&D programmes

Complementing Horizon 2020 there are other international initiatives to fund research and innovation, such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Security Agency (EDA), the Third Health Program, the European Defense Program (EDIDP), the CEF (Connecting European Facilities) Program, ERA-NETs or COST actions, among others.

In Training Resources, you can find more information about many of these programs in the Information sheets section.

PIVOT, the platform to find international R&D opportunities

Additionally, UPM has access to the PIVOT platform to search for funding opportunities at a international level. It covers all kinds of research projects, awards, equipment purchases, scholarships, etc. It has international coverage that covers financial organizations (public and private) from the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, Latin America or Australia and New Zealand, among others.

Predefined searches in PIVOT:

OPI manages the PIVOT platform so we have created a series of thematic searches that can be used as a guide to create new ones, based on each researcher’s research areas and receive weekly updates by email.

PIVOT training:
If you want to sign in to PIVOT for the first time, we recommend you to check our PIVOT sign in guide (in Spanish).

In addition, we hold periodic online seminars on the different aspects of the platform. You can consult the documentation and upcoming sessions on 40 minutos con la OPI´s site.

If you want to know more about any of the international programs or have questions about the PIVOT platform, do not hesitate to contact us by email international.research@upm.es.
