The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research has published two calls for proposals in the Thematic Area of 'Research potential of convergence regions' under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The first call, entitled 'Unlocking and developing the research potential of research entities in the EU's convergence regions and outermost regions', is designed for single public or private research entities of significant size, such as university departments, faculties or specialised research institutes, which have been established in the EU's convergence regions and outermost regions. The indicative budget for this call amounts to EUR 30 million. With an indicative budget of EUR 8 million, the second call for proposals on 'International co-operation' is intended for groups where at least one research entity is from a Mediterranean Partner Country, one from a convergence region or outermost region in a Member State or Associated Country, and one from another Member State or Associated Country. Possible Mediterranean Partner Countries include: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Syria, Palestinian Administered Areas and Libya. For both calls, entities applying should not be a subsidiary or branch of another legal entity established in a different country.To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address: http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/calls/
