The Fulbright-Schuman Innovation Grants are an initiative by the U.S. government and the European Commission to support researchers and mid-career professionals from the United States and the EU who work at the intersection of technology and policy, allowing for a transatlantic approach to harnessing the potential of new technologies. Open to all disciplines with a focus on innovation. In addition to meeting the criteria and rigorous standards of a regular Fulbright-Schuman award, the Innovation Grants will go to proposals covering topics related to the intersection of technology and policy. The award also hopes to attract mid career professionals not just students and academics. The Innovation Grants are designed to support work that can create better transatlantic understanding of issues at the heart of the U.S.-EU relationship, particularly at the intersection of policy and technology. The policy-oriented research funded by the grant should be of common importance for the U.S.-EU relationship and/or EU affairs and tenable in any one or two EU Member States. Candidates are responsible for arranging their own placement, including letters of invitation from any hosts.
