FP7 Information Day at Karolinska Institutet
Information Roadshow on the European R&D programmes.
During the summer the last calls within the EU´s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP7) will open. This years´ budget of 8 billion euro is the largest since the start of FP7 in 2007.
The Information Day on May 10 is specifically aimed at researchers who are actively seeking funding, but perhaps are not yet familiar with FP7. It is also an opportunity for others to freshen up their knowledge of FP7.
You will get an overview of the opportunities within FP7, information on what kind of support you can get in the application process, advice on how to succeed with your application and tips from local researchers who have participated in EU-funded projects. Some of VINNOVA's National Contact Points (NCPs) for FP7 will be at the meeting and there will also be ample opportunity for networking.
All presentations will be held in English.
