Joining a project- Competitive Calls (Calls by projects)

The EU's Sixth Framework Programme for research and development (FP6) includes new instruments for research funding: Integrated Projects (IPs) and Networks of Excellence (NoEs). During their initial negotiation with the Commission, IPs or NoEs may reserve a portion of the project budget for specific tasks to be carried out by a new contractor or contractors, who will join the consortium at a later date. New partners will be selected from proposals submitted in response to a competitive call.

For organisations interested in joining ongoing FP6 projects, the competitive call announcement will be published on CORDIS, with a link to the website of the project. The project consortium will publish all necessary documentation and background information on their website.

 

Open Competitive calls

Project title : Silencing RNAs: organisers and coordinators of complexityin eukaryotic organisms

Project acronym: SIROCCO
Project contract number: LSHG-CT-2006-037900

Call announcement: The project SIROCCO currently active in the Sixth Framework programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities contributing to the creation of the European research area and to innovation (2002-2006) requires the participation of new project partners to carry out certain tasks within the project.

We have a vacancy in our consortium for partners established in an EU Member State or Associated State, and having comprehensive expertise in the following research areas: 1. BIOINFORMATICS AND COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY. The tasks include development of computational methods for the analysis of small RNA datasets produced by high throughput sequencing and the construction of a bioinformatics platform for analysis of these data. There is also the scope for the development of computational modelling methods to allow small RNA datasets to be integrated with transcript and epigenetic profiling data. The aim of these approaches is to understand the influence of RNA silencing as a regulator and modulator of complex regulatory systems in normal growth and development and in disease.
2. DIAGNOSTIC/CLINICAL APPLICATIONS Development and/or improvement of methods for delivery of sRNAs and improved silencing technologies in model and other systems; and developing the diagnostic potential of sRNAs or variation in sRNA target sites in health and disease.
Up to three new partners will be selected for funding in this competitive call to be integrated in the SIROCCO consortium and at least one Small and medium enterprise (SME) will be selected for funding in the area of biotechnology/clinical applications.

Deadline: The call closes on 12 November 2009 at 17h00 (Brussels time)
Expected duration of participation in project: January 2010 to December 2010 (with a possible 12 month extension to December 2011, pending EC's acceptance)
Total EC funding available for new partners is up to €1 000 000
Call identifier: SIROCCO call
Language in which proposal should be submitted: English

Project title : Integrated Health, Social and Economic Impacts of Extreme Events: Evidence, Methods and Tools

Project acronym: MICRODIS
Project contract number: 036877 (GOCE)

Call announcement: The MICRODIS project currently active in the Sixth Framework programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities contributing to the creation of the European research area and to innovation (2002-2006) requires the participation of a new project partner to carry out certain tasks within the project.

The work to be carried out by the new partner will be related to the impacts of the earthquake that affected L’Aquila in April 2009. The new partner should have experience in earthquake-related impact studies, in particular the areas of socio-economics and health. Ideally, the team should be multidisciplinary and consist of personnel with skills in relevant area such as epidemiology, social anthropology, health analysts, economics, socio-economics and social geography. Skills and competences within the team should also include assessment of economic losses and damages, and specifically valuation of cultural heritage properties. They should be capable to collect and analyze injury and survival impact data from the earthquake event in the months following the disaster. A strong affiliation with civil protection and other national institutions will be an asset, without which this study cannot be implemented. The new partner should have the capacity to provide field surveyors, interviewers, data entry personnel, and scientific analysts. The institution must have proven experience in empirical data collection and analysis.
The new partner should have sufficient contacts and familiarity be able to undertake household surveys in Italy, and should be fluent in both English and Italian.

Deadline: Wednesday, October 21st, 2009,5pm Brussels time
Expected duration of participation in project: from 01/02/2010 to 31/01/2011
Estimated costs and funding for the tasks:
Research cost: 180,000 € (to be supported by Commission funding of up to 100%)
Training cost: 20,000 € (to be supported by Commission funding of up to 100%)
Total Commission funding available: 200,000 €
Call identifier: FP6-GLOBAL-2009-MICRODIS-1
Language in which proposal should be submitted: English
