Strengthening Cooperation in ICT R&D in an Enlarged European Union

Summary: 

One of the current ICT call 7 objectives is targeting at reinforcing the cooperation across the enlarged European Union within the ongoing ICT/7FP projects.

The ongoing ICT call 7, Objective ICT-2011.11.3 seeks to add new partners and additional budget to existing projects to increase the number of EU countries (and FP7 associated countries) involved in the research. The target is to reinforce the cooperation across the enlarged European Union and to strengthen the integration of the European Research Area in ICT.
Proposals must be presented by the coordinator of the on-going project. In order to ensure the widest impact across the Member and Associated States and European Research Area, the additional partners must be located in countries not already present in the existing consortium.
The deadline for the proposal submission is 18th of January (17.00 Brussels time).
