FET Young Explorers Featured IC projects

Take a look below at the profiles of some International cooperation projects which are already exploiting the opportunities of FET funding to build their knowledge.


International cooperation on FET research

The deadline for the submission of project proposals to the FP7-ICT-2013-C call was extended to 15 April 2013.

Target outcomes

This objective aims to increase and accelerate the impact of FET research projects by cooperating with non-EU partners of excellent global standing. It targets the extension of ongoing FET projects with complementary research activities in which collaboration with non-EU research partners brings significant added value.

The research content is expected to focus on new activities that expand the research challenges and reinforce the impact of the ongoing project. The outcome of that research is expected to be made freely and openly available for the benefit of the research community.

Funding can be requested by partners from the ongoing FET project and by the new non-EU research participant(s) to cover the coordination and joint research activities necessary to complement the ongoing project. At least 50% of the requested funding should be allocated to the new non-EU research participants.

Expected impact

  • Enhanced outcomes, global reach and impact of ongoing FET research projects through research collaboration with non-EU participants with complementary expertise;
  • Reinforced research cooperation between world-class EU and non-EU researcher teams facilitating the emergence of global alliances.

Indicative budget

EUR 2 million. This is an indicative budget which is expected to be committed for successful proposals from the cut-off dates of 25/09/2012 up to and including 15/04/2013 - (batches 14 to 15 included).
