(25/11/2008) A large delegation of Latin American ICT private & public companies, research centres & universities and academia stakeholders that have expressed the interest in cooperating with EU counterparts in the ICT Programme will travel to Europe this November to take active part in key FP7 activities. The delegation will attend the ICT event in Lyon representing a concrete opportunity for Latin American FP7 newcomers to meet consolidated and experienced European participants of the ICT Programme of the European Commission.

The objective of the delegation is to meet European counterparts to start future collaborations and projects under the ICT priority of the Framework Programme. Latin American delegates will set out their ICT capabilities in order to match those with European ones and will discuss about their project ideas to be developed and structured in the various opportunities offered by the next call for proposals with European partners. The delegation will also have the opportunity to learn the insides out from the European Commission of forthcoming ICT Calls for 2009-10.
