The deadline for the first series of cross-thematic calls for the Public Private Partnerships "Factories of the Future" and "Energy Efficient Buildings", was 3 November 2009. For these two calls, 157 proposals were submitted of which one proposal did not meet the eligibility criteria. The remaining proposals are distributed over the different call topics as follows.
|FoF.NMP.2010-1||Plug and Produce components for adaptive control||21|
|FoF.NMP.2010-2td||Supply chain approaches for small series industrial production||25|
|FoF.NMP.2010-3||Intelligent, scalable, manufacturing platforms and equipment for components with micro- and nano-scale functional features||16|
|FoF.ICT.2010.10-1||Smart Factories: ICT for agile and environmentally friendly manufacturing||34|
|EeB.NMP.2010-1||New nanotechnology based high performance insulation systems for energy efficiency||11|
|EeB.NMP.2010-2||New technologies for energy efficiency at district level||8|
|EeB.ENV.2010-3.2.4-1||Compatible solutions for improving the energy efficiency of historic buildings in urban areas||5|
|EeB.Energy.2010.8.1-2||Demonstration of energy efficiency through retrofitting of buildings||10|
|EeB.ICT.2010.10-2||ICT for energy-efficient buildings and spaces of public use||26|
The evaluation of these proposals is planned for December/January. The outcome of the evaluations is expected to be known before the end of January 2010.
The 3rdseries of FP7-NMP calls for Large, Small and SME targeted collaborative projects were published on 19 November 2008. The evaluation followed a two-stage procedure:
For the stage-1 deadline of 17 February 2009, 608 proposals were submitted. In the stage-1 proposals an outline had to be given of the foreseen R&D work and the expected impact.
Following the evaluation of these proposals in March 2009, 115 proposals were invited to submit a full proposal for the stage-2 deadline of 22 July 2009. In the full proposal a total overview of the R&D work had to be presented, as well as information about the partners, management structure, impact and exploitation and the dissemination strategy.
115 full proposals were submitted in stage 2, and evaluated in September 2009.
From the 115 evaluated proposals, 48 proposals reached all thresholds and were selected for funding. This represents an overall success rate of 42% in stage 2.
Detailed information about the three separate calls can be found in Table 1.
Table 2 gives an overview of the number of submitted and retained proposals for both stages. All topics have at least 2 retained proposals. Coordinators of these proposals will be invited for grant agreement negotiations.
