FP7 Information Days on Research PPPs 11-12 July 2011
In order to support the preparation of proposals, Joint Information Days on Research PPPs were organised. More than 800 participants coming from 41 different countries attended the event.
On the first day a good overview of the activities going on in the PPPs was given by industrial representatives and information was provided about the third cross-thematic Coordinated Calls for the PPPs (launched on 20 July 2011). In particular, the research areas open and the conditions for participation were explained.
On the second day the impact and future outlook of each PPP (FoF, EeB and EGCI) was discussed in parallel sessions. Herbert von Bose, Director for Industrial Technologies in DG Research and Innovation, presented the first plans for the future Framework Programme ' Horizon 2020'.
