The Joint Undertakings of ARTEMIS and ENIAC aim to tackle the research and structural challenges faced by the industrial sector in the areas of Embedded Computing Systems and Nanoelectronics. The Joint Undertakings will manage and coordinate research activities through calls for proposals, with the first calls opening on 8 May 2008. The programmes are open to organisations in European Union Member States and Associated Countries. Selected projects will be cofinanced by the Joint Undertakings and the Member States that have joined ARTEMIS and ENIAC. With the start of the ARTEMIS call on 8 May 2008, Ideal-ist opens its online partner search tool for project ideas relating to this call. “Finding the right international project partners has always been a challenging task for proposers to European Framework funds”, says Mohsine Chefki, coordinator of the EU-funded Ideal-ist project. “By offering our well-established and successful partner search tool we want to make it easier for proposers to find appropriate research partners for their ARTEMIS projects.” A similar service for ENIAC is currently under negotiation, but expected to be online soon after the call opening. Ideal-ist is the first quality-labelled international ICT partner search network, composed of European ICT National Contact Points (NCPs) and part-funded by the European Commission. The Ideal-ist network consists of 49 national partners from EU Member States, International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) and Associated States, as well as the Western Balkan Countries, Newly Independent States and Mediterranean Countries. Ideal-ist also collaborates with further ICPC partners in countries such as China, Brazil, India, and South Africa in line with the international cooperation strategy of the European Commission.
