Q: What is the participation level of Turkey in the FP7. What I have already read says that it will depend of the eligible costs. I would like to know where I could find more information in order to know how much budget could get Turkey in this FP7.
A: The status of being a candidate country is irrelevant regarding the participation in FP7. The important point is that the Rules for Participation (RfP) gives certain rights to countries associated to the FP7, in fact almost exactly the same rights as Member States. However, the RfP is not adopted yet, and as you mention, no country has signed the association agreement yet. See detailed info on CORDIS: However, there is absolutely no reason to believe that some of this will change. The scientific communities in the (potential) Associated States (including Turkey) should participate in FP7 and write their proposals (also to the ICT theme), as if the association agreement were already in place. We had exactly the same situation in the beginning of FP6, but all association agreements were then signed well before the first FP6 Contract were awarded. We strongly assume this will be the case in FP7 as well. Note also that the Republic of Montenegro and the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) have recently finalised their negotiations with the Commission and will become associated countries on the same basis as Turkey, Croatia and Republic of Serbia as soon as their association agreement documents have been signed.
