We were talking about the fantastic opportunity for organisations in the final calls for FP7 the other day.
"It's like it's in the last chance saloon", Liz said. Well she is from Boston (and in the UK legally).
A light bulb went on above Ken's head (a low energy one of course) and Anis said, "that's a great idea for our latest FP7 podcast".
The final and mightiest work programme under the 7th EU Research and Technological Framework Programme 2007-2013 (more commonly known by the acronym FP7), was published on 9 July 2012, with an injection of around €8 billion into Europe's research and innovation system.
FP7 funding is open to businesses, universities and research institutes involved in cutting edge research. The Enterprise Europe network in more than 50 countries, is here to help you get information about what is involved and how to get involved.
Project submissions are being written and consortia being formed NOW for the final submission deadlines at the end of this year and in the spring of 2013.
So welcome stranger, just you sidle up to the bar, order yourself a drink and rest your spurs. Listen and find out more about FP7, what it means to your organisation and how to take part in a mighty fine way!
