FP7: Coordination Communities, Plans & Actions in FET Proactive Initiatives


WHAT ARE Coordination Communities, Plans & Actions in FET Proactive Initiatives ?

(Extract from Work programme 2009-2010 Objective 2009.8.9 - Call 5)

Target outcome:

a) Coordination or support actions supporting the coordination and cooperation of the targeted research communities, assessing the impact and proposing measures to increase the visibility of the initiative to the scientific community, to targeted industries and to the public at large through dedicated events and/or media campaigns. These actions should also foster the consolidation of research agendas and the coordination of national, regional or international research programmes or activities. Each action should encourage the establishment and promotion of new educational curricula, also bridging and exploiting opportunities offered through Marie-Curie schemes and by the EIT. It should also promote international cooperation in foundational research on topics of the initiative.

b) Coordination actions fostering the networking of research activities conducted at national or regional level, facilitating the mutual opening of national and regional research programmes where appropriate, e.g. for Quantum Information Foundations and Technologies. These actions should involve in particular national or regional research programme owners and aim at the eventual launch of an ERA-NET plus action in a subsequent phase.

Expected impact:

  • Reinforced coordination of research projects in proactive initiatives in current or previous calls
  • Readiness for ERA-NET or ERA-NET Plus schemes where appropriate
  • Strengthened European research excellence, including preparation of co-operation and co-ordination with international partners from outside Europe
