Joint partnering event for FP7 projects in Vienna, May 15

The event offers a unique opportunity to obtain actual information on tentative topics of the next calls for proposals under FP7 based on the official input from the FTP. Participants can present ideas for EU-projects and discuss them with potential partners. They will also have the opportunity to give feedback and to support and supplement each other's ideas. Usually such events are starting points for building consortia and core planning teams in order to submit research proposals later.

New calls for project proposals concerning collaborative research to be funded under FP7 are expected to be launched at the end of June 2009. This partnering event is dedicated to calls of the thematic priorities 2 ‘Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology', 4 "Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies', 5 ‘Energy' and 6 ‘Environment (incl. Climate Change) (as far as information on the tentative content has become available).

The partnering event is structured into 3 parts:
- introduction (specifics on call topics, overview of already funded FP7 projects in our sector),
- presentation of project ideas by participants (max. 5 min. each) and
- pre-arranged partnering meetings (2 rounds).

Venue and time
The event will takes place on Friday May 15, 2009 (10:00 - 16:00) at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, located at Stubenring 1, Vienna, Austria (Conference Room 2).

The participants fee is 50 €. The fee covers lunch and coffee breaks. Those who are interested are asked to complete the registration form at the FTP website, www.forestplatform.org, and forward it to the organiser by April 30, 2009.
