Topic INFRASUPP-3-2014 – Strengthening the human capital of research infrastructures: in case a proposal is targeting training needs of staff managing and operating a specific type of RIs (or in a specific domain), is such proposal eligible?

If this proposal complies with the other eligibility conditions, its content would correspond, “wholly or in part, to the topic description against which it is submitted, in the relevant work programme part”; it would therefore be eligible.
However, the specific challenge of this topic makes it clear that the extent to which proposals “foster coordination across domains and types of infrastructures” will be evaluated. In particular, the evaluation will consider to which extent a proposal is addressing the “intercultural and interdisciplinary nature as well as the diversity” of the pan-European research infrastructures.
As reminded in this topic, potential applicants should notice that specific training of staff is actually encouraged under other calls and topics for research infrastructures, for example under topic INFRADEV-4-2014/2015, “Implementation and operation of cross-cutting services and solutions for clusters of ESFRI and other relevant research infrastructure initiatives”: “Proposals may address the development of skills and the specific training of staff managing and operating the research infrastructures, as well as fostering the innovation potential of research infrastructures, in complementarity with the horizontal activities supported under Call H2020-INFRASUPP-2014/2015 (in particular topics INFRASUPP-3-2014 and INFRASUPP-4-2015)”.
