Founding members of the Central European Science Partnership – CEUS , among them ARRS, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on establishment of the multilateral Lead Agency today in Vienna. This is a very first agreement of this kind in Europe, signed by more than three research funding agencies. By signing the MoU, the four agencies reconfirmed mutual recognition of individual evaluation procedures' standards as a basis for introduction of principle of trust, as stepping stone of the Lead Agency cooperation.

The CEUS partnership was grounded in September 2018 and is founded by the FWF (Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschafltichen Forschung - Austria), GA ČR (Grantová Agentura České Republiky – Czech Republic), NCN (Narodowe Centrum Nauki - Poland) and ARRS.

The signed MoU will enable researchers from above mentioned countries to come forward with joint bi- or trilateral research projects. By applying the Lead Agency scheme the administrative burdens on research teams will be significantly reduced.
