The ICT Work Programme for 2009-10 is published.
Objective 1.2: Internet of Services, Software and Virtualisation has two main research lines:
- Service Platforms for the Future Internet
- The rapid development of the Internet, both in speed and in capabilities, will create a whole new and innovative market of services providing a new experience to users. The everyday life of citizens and workers of all types will be supported by new convergent services of the Future Internet that can also sense and react to the physical world. The research area «Service Architectures and Platforms for the Future Internet» should provide a basis for the creation of this innovative market of services.
- Highly Innovative Service/Software engineering
- The second area of research should result in new technologies and new research lines that will make this innovative service market highly reliable and dynamic. Dynamicity implies that decisions that in the traditional software life cycle were made at design time, will be made at run time. Also verification and validation methods need to be rethought in order to deal with a dynamic, open service market. Together, the two pillars of research will offer a competitive environment for service providers, and will strengthen the European Software and Service industry.
How to Participate in ICT Research in FP7
Information about ICT research in FP7 is available online on this website with details about:
* Work Programme 2009 - 2010
* Calls for Proposals for ICT Call 5 (FP7-ICT-2009-5)
Get feedback on your proposal
As indicated in the Guides for Applicants for the call, you could get a brief assessment of your pre-proposal by sending us a summary of your proposal's objectives by e-mail. You could also request an informal meeting with a project officer. These services have been stopped as of 6th of October 2009, i.e. 3 weeks before the submission deadline of the call, as indicated in the Guides for Applicants for pre-proposal assessments. Meetings with potential applicants were stopped at the same time.
More information on FP7
The FP7 website has both general information about the Framework Programme including who can participate (eligible countries, eligible consortia...), when events happen (calls - for proposals, for experts...), what (Budget, Funding schemes...) and how (Financial rules, forms of grants, IPR, ...) .The legal reference documents, including the decisions on the Framework Programme, the Specific Programme and the Rules for Participation are also available online.

In the area of Software and Services, a consultation process was established and multiple inputs from individuals, projects, expert groups, etc., were received. They are available here for consultation by the research community.
These documents are being taken into account for the preparation of the Work Programme. However, it is important to note that the documents only represent the views of the writers and the European Commission does not necessarily need to agree to their content or to incorporate them into the new Work Programme.
