ERA-Can Information Session on FP7 Opportunities: Memorial University of Newfoundland
Date: September 19, 2012
Time: 10 am - noon
Location: Education Building, ED 5004/05, Memorial University of Newfoundland
The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) is Europe's largest funding mechanism for advanced research and research training with an investment of €50 billion over seven years (2007-13). The number of Canadian participants in FP7 projects is now more than doubled the number in all of FP6. Canadian researchers who collaborate in EU-led international research consortia, or who participate in Marie Curie mobility and training programs, join some of the best minds in their field in well-funded projects, leverage their resources and exponentially increase the scope and impact of their work.
ERA-Can assists Canadians participate in FP7 by providing up-to-date information on programs and calls and assistance to individual researchers applying for grants and negotiating contracts. ERA-Can does this through its website and newsletter, advice service for researchers and information sessions on opportunities for Canadians to participate in FP7.
This information session will give researchers an opportunity to learn more about FP7 programs, meet FP7 National Contact Points in key thematic areas and hear from experienced Canadian participants in FP7 projects.
