This call is open to proposals across all scientific domains. The focus of the scheme is to foster meetings that aim to open up new directions in research or to explore emerging research fields with potential impact on new developments in science. Proposals should also demonstrate the potential for initiating follow-up actions. Proposals will be evaluated on the potential to create breakthroughs and form the basis for new areas of research and/or innovative applications, or the changing of paradigms.
