Complete list of FP7 nanotechnology calls for proposal
(Nanowerk News) Cordis has published an overview list of activities in the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) with calls for proposals in 2008 of direct relevance to nanotechnology.
The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) bundles all research-related EU initiatives together under a common roof playing a crucial role in reaching the goals of growth, competitiveness and employment; along with a new Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), Education and Training programmes, and Structural and Cohesion Funds for regional convergence and competitiveness. It is also a key pillar for the European Research Area (ERA).
The broad objectives of FP7 have been grouped into four categories: Cooperation, Ideas, People and Capacities. For each type of objective, there is a specific programme corresponding to the main areas of EU research policy. All specific programmes work together to promote and encourage the creation of European poles of (scientific) excellence.
The 42 nanotechnology related calls under FP7 are spread across 10 different programs such as nanomaterials, nanomedicine, nanoelectronics, and impact assessment and societal issues.
An overview of all FP7 calls and information on how to find additonal information on calls, how to submit a proposal, an how to get help can be found here on the EU website.
