    The Official Bulletin of the State published on October 2 the new guidelines for the regulations for the offer, among others, of grants to research projects framed in the programs of "Promotion of Scientific and Technical Research of Excellence" and "Research, Development and Innovation Directed at the Challenges of Society", both within the framework of the National Plan of Scientific and Technical Research 2013-2016.

    The Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness started the procedures needed for the publication of the corresponding calls for projects. As it has been previously announced by the Ministry, the call for projects of not-oriented fundamental research of the previous National Plan for Scientific and Technical Research 2008-2012 is divided this year into two calls: Research and Development Projects framed in the National Subprogram of Knowledge Generation, and Research and Development and Innovation Projects "Challenges of Research", in the framework of the National Program of Research, Development and Innovation Directed at the Challenges of Society.

    In advance to the publication of the calls, expected by the Ministry to take place during October, an informative announcement is made with the main news and important aspects. In the call for the National Subprogram of Knowledge Generation the following calls will also be published: "Explore Science" and "Explore Technology" projects, and "Europe Excelence" Dynamic Actions. Furthermore, in the call for the National Program of Research, Development and Innovation Directed at the Challenges of Society, the call for "Initiatives of Joint International Programming" will also be published.

    The objectives of these grants can be found in the 2013 Annual Action Plan, which is available at the website of the MINECO. The periods for applying will be made public in the corresponding calls.
