Launching FP7
Conference for Information Multipliers
Brussels, 7-8 February 2007

General information

The European Commission would like to welcome you to the Launching FP7 Conference for Information Multipliers, the aim of which is to provide participants with complete first-hand information and a series of communication tools regarding the Seventh Framework Programme. These communication tools have been tailored for needs of “information multipliers” and translated into the
23 official languages of the European Union, in order to support their presentations and FP7 launch events in their own countries, regions and institutions.

Conference documentation

Participants receive a complete kit of information on the Seventh Framework Programme in 23 languages. This includes a DVD with the official FP7 PowerPoint presentation (60 slides), a 3-minute animated presentation of FP7, official FP7 logos and posters, and an FP7 leaflet. In addition, more concrete information about the different Specific Programmes of FP7 is available at each Exhibition stand.

Plenary sessions

These will address all the main thematic priorities of the Seventh Framework Programme as well as novelties and cross-cutting issues such as the European Research Council, patenting and intellectual property, etc.

Practical sessions

A session on how to participate in the Seventh Framework Programme will provide practical guidance. Since the conference is structured around parallel sessions, and in order to allow all participants to attend, this practical session will be run three times over the course of the conference.

Exhibition

An EC exhibition with general information stands on the Seventh Framework Programme is located in the Charlemagne building, next to the meeting rooms where the information sessions will be addressed. A permanent presence of EC staff at these info-stands will ensure a constant flow of information and answers to participants' questions during the event.

The Exhibition Guide attached to the Conference Programme and to the Participants Badge provides information on the stands. The Communication Unit stand provides general information on FP7 and practical aspects of the event.

The conference and internet

All Conference sessions were accessible via real-time web-streaming, including both speakers and their PowerPoint presentations, and interpretation - in five languages for the Einstein room, S3 (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian) and in two languages (English and French) for the other conference meeting rooms. The videos from all sessions are also available on this website after the conference. A ‘cyber-cafe’ was freely accessible, with computers spread across the conference site.
