Brussels, 24 January 2008


FET Proactive organised an Information Event on January 24, 2008 in Brussels, in Avenue de Beaulieu 25.

The threefold purpose of the FET FP7 - Call 3 Information Event is:

  • To provide up-to-date and first-hand information on the three FET initiatives in FP7-Call 3. Contractual, legal and administrative modalities will be also covered. A Q&A session will ensure that participants don't leave the event with unanswered questions.
  • To facilitate the formation of consortia for proposals to the Call, and to promote synergies and collaborations across proposers through an open exchange 'Proposers Forum'. To this end, participants are encouraged to lay out their ideas for possible proposals, identify the expertise they are seeking for, or simply express their intention of getting involved in a consortium.
  • To inspire potential proposers through key-note speeches by leading scientists.

The FET FP7 Call 3 was launched 4 December2007.

Details (practical guidelines, submission deadlines etc) will be made available on this website and on the FET Proactive Home page in due time.

The FET information event will include:

a PLENARY SESSION followed by 3 PARALLEL SESSIONS in a compact one day scheme .
