Invitation to submit Expressions of Interest: An opportunity for Europe's research community to help prepare for the first calls of FP6

Funded under: FP6


The European Commission is inviting the submission of expressions of interest (EoI) to participate in research actions for topics throughout the seven thematic priorities of the Specific Programme Proposal - Integrating and Strengthening the ERA - and thematic priorities 2.2 and 2.3 of the Specific Programme Proposal - Nuclear Energy. This invitation does not apply to the other types of activities.
The European Commission is inviting those interested in submitting proposals for "Integrated Projects" or "Networks of Excellence" (both are new instruments for FP6) to submit EoI to participate in research actions for topics that could be the subject of proposals for these two instruments.
Submissions of EoI are invited from those organisations or groups of organisations from the Member States, associated candidate countries and other associated states intending to form consortia (which may also include entities from third countries and international organisations) to respond to later calls for proposals with an Integrated Project or Network of Excellence.
