Subject: 2013 FP7 Calls Targeted to Canadians
List of 2013 COOPERATION Calls for Proposals Targeted to Canadians Now Available on ERA-Can.ca!
2013 calls for proposals in the COOPERATION Specific Programme were published to the European Commission's CORDIS website July 9 and 10.
Calls are divided into the following Thematic Areas:
The COOPERATION Programme supports proposals from multi-national, multi-sectoral consortia. Each proposal must include a minimum of three partners from three different European Member States or Associated Countries.
Canadian researchers are eligible to participate in these proposals on a self-funded basis. In exceptional circumstances, if the proposal can successfully make the case that a Canadian partner's participation is both essential to the project's success and that it represents a unique expertise not available in Europe, Canadians may also be eligible to receive funding directly from the European Commission.
Some calls for proposals are also specifically targeted to Canadians. Although Canadians may participate in any project, these calls especially encourage the participation of Canadian partners. ERA-Can has compiled a listing of these targeted calls which is now available at ERA-Can.ca
For assistance with the calls, please contact Mélodie Cardin, Manager of Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org
