Practical information

A summary of the main aspects on how to Participate in FP7 can be found on the CORDIS website.

Full details of how to prepare a proposal are given in the ICT Guides for applicants (obtainable from the CORDIS Call 5 announcement page). Note that there is one Guide for each instrument type, since the required structure of the proposal is different for each instrument.

The Create project page provides more guidance on how to prepare a proposal.

Ideal-ist : A partner search facility.

The network of National Contact Points (NCPs), can be helpful both for general advice (particularly on preparing proposals) and for finding partners from other countries.

Evaluators wanted

Are you interested in being involved in FP7 activities as evaluator or project reviewer?

High-level experts with experience in information and communication technology (and a good knowledge of English, which is the working language in the evaluation) are constantly needed.

Manifest your interest and signal your availability as an evaluator to the INFSO E2 mailbox , with the mention 'FP7-ICT Call Evaluators' in the subject field.

Experts for research activities can register from now onward. If selected to assist in an evaluation, you will be asked to sign a conflict of interest declaration, so that you are not involved in the evaluation of one of your own proposals, or of proposals competing with it.
