WP7, Task 2.4 - Review of EU & national funding opportunities& database development

A database of funding opportunities and skills resources was created. The original version was produced in Microsoft Access. This was then converted to Excel to accommodate flexible development as the information requirements grew. The current database is more extensive than originally planned with top level headings that include: funding agencies; programmes; instruments; calls; proposals; assistance with proposal writing; EVI-GTI projects; education; information centres, advisory councils, laboratories and authorities; professional institutes; specialist groups; meetings; partner details; contacts; attachments (that include technical documents and other relevant information); and EU networks. This database is now being up-graded into a fully searchable version which will be published as the new EVI-GTI website is launched in early October 2005. The database itself is not exploitable but the function it serves, in providing a key information service for members and a source of reference for R&D funding opportunities and collaboration, has the potential to be worth multi million euros in the future.
