IAPP Programme results to date
The IAPP action was launched at the start of FP7 and has advertised two calls to date. The 2007 call worth EUR 38.5 million attracted 102 funding applications (including 152 SMEs). Forty projects were accepted for funding, including 50 SME partners (of which six were co-ordinators). The first projects started in March 2008 and the contract signature process is ongoing.
The 2008 call of EUR 45 million attracted 141 applicants (230 SMEs). It is likely that 45-50 projects will be financed, with 50 to 80 SME participants (and between 8 and 14 SME co-ordinators). Negotiations began at the end of July 2008 and it is expected that the first contracts will be signed in January 2009.
