An Overview of Collaboration and Researcher Mobility Opportunities with the European Research Program

   May 30, 2012 - 10:00 am to noon, FL-2, The Large Seminar Room (1022)  Dr. Astrid-Christina Koch, Science Counsellor for the Delegation of  the European Union to the USA, will be speaking at UCAR on May 29th  and 30th on the following opportunities for possible joint  collaborations with UCAR/NCAR/UCP:  The Seventh European Research Framework Programme (FP7) provides  funding of more than €54 billion over seven years to increase  Europe’s growth and competitiveness, recognizing that knowledge is  Europe’s greatest resource. The European Commission has allocated  these funds for the implementation of the FP7 over the period  2007–2013. FP7 consists of four specific programmes: cooperation —  to fund collaborative projects between research teams; ideas — to  fund excellent individual investigators in cutting edge frontier  research through European-level competition; people — to fund  training, mobility and career development of researchers; and  capacities — to enhance research and innovation capacity throughout  Europe.  The Cooperation Programme of the Seventh Framework Programme  provides financial support to researchers in Europe to work together  on international collaborative research projects to advance  knowledge, propose solutions to some of the major issues facing us  today, and develop new technologies for the future. It will promote  cooperation between universities, industry and research centers  across the European Union as well as with the rest of the world.
