To support preparation of proposals for the Research Public Private Partnerships, an Info Day was held on 9 July in Brussels. Around 850 participants attended the event which was opened by the new Director General of DG Research, Mr. Robert-Jan Smits. Afterwards a good overview of the activities going on in the PPPs was given by industrial representatives.
The aim of this event was also to provide information about the second Cross-thematic Coordinated Calls related to the PPPs which will most likely be published on 20 July 2010. In particular, the research areas open were explained and these can be found in the so-called 'Annex 5'. This document is not yet officially adopted. It is therefore subject to change in the course of the adoption process.
All presentations will be made available as soon as possible on this website.
