FP7 IDEAS – Prog Cons Meeting (1 Nov.)
Gateway Building, Room 154
University of Malta
Thursday November 1, 2007
1400hrs - 1600hrs
The IDEAS programme is a new FP7 programme with a budget of €7.4 billion designed to finance 100% of basic research costs. It finances both experienced as well as more junior researchers and provides an ideal opportunity for financing university research. Unlike traditional FP7 consortia, research teams can be from a single institution.
In view of the upcoming calls to be published in November 2007, the MCST is organising a consultation meeting to discuss the rules of participation and identify any issues which local researchers may face with regards to submitting proposals.
The aim of this meeting is to identify any issues and work together towards augmenting participation in this programme. As a result, we are inviting all potential participants or those with an interest in the IDEAS Programme to attend the meeting scheduled for Thursday November 1, 2007, at 2 – 4pm, Gateway Building Room 154, University of Malta.
For reservations please contact Karen Fiorini or call on 2360 2134.
The two types of ERC grants available are:
- The ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grants (ERC Starting Grants). The objective is to provide adequate support to the independent careers of excellent researchers in or moving to the EU and associated countries, who are at the stage of establishing and leading their first research team or programme.
- The ERC Advanced Investigator Grants (ERC Advanced Grants). The objective is to encourage and support excellent, innovative investigator-initiated research projects by leading advanced investigators across the EU member states and countries associated to the framework programme.
