5 FP7 – Summary Co-operation

6 FP7 – Summary Research and demonstration Collaborative Cost sharing (no profit) Commission defined priorities Innovative European impact Key aspects

7 FP7 – Summary Developing new contacts, networks and opportunities Discovering new ideas and solutions Learning from experiences of others Access to facilities and knowledge Prestige and profile Career development for employees Benefits of participation

8 FP7 – Summary Improve the competitiveness of European industry. Enable Europe to master and shape future developments in ICT. Meet the demands of European society and economy. Strengthen Europe’s scientific and technology base, ensuring its global leadership in ICT. Help to reduce the digital divide and social exlusion. ICT Theme Objectives

9 FP7 – Summary Cognitive systems and robotics Technologies for Digital Content and Languages Digital Preservation ICT for Health, Ageing Well, Inclusion and Governance Virtual Physiological Human ICT for Learning and Access to Cultural Resources ICT for access to cultural resources Future and Emerging Technologies FET Proactive 2012 Call 9 overview

10 FP7 – Summary 5.2 Virtual Physiological Human – Patient-specific predictive computer- based models and simulation Key points : Either IP or STREP (IP average budget €10M, STREP average budget €2M) One or more proposals will be selected single-stage call FP7-ICT-2011-9 = 17 April 2012 Focus : Integrating medical, biological and environmental data. Enabling the development of predictive models and simulation for understanding the evolution and progression of major diseases. Accelerated developments of medical knowledge discovery and management through exploration of environmental factors in predictive models of diseases. Challenge 5: ICT for Health, Ageing Well, Inclusion and Governance

11 FP7 – Summary 8.2 ICT for access to cultural resources – Technologies for creating personalised and engaging digital cultural experiences Key points : Either IP or STREP (IP average budget €10M, STREP average budget €2M) One or more proposals will be selected single-stage call FP7-ICT-2011-9 = 17 April 2012 Focus : Address adaptability of systems for personalised interaction with users. Improve user engagement with cultural resources (e.g. context-aware artefacts, enhanced interfaces – with features such as story-telling, gaming and learning). Affordability and widespread availability to a wider range of users. Challenge 8: ICT for Learning and Access to Cultural Resources

12 FP7 – Summary Joint Technology Initiatives (JTI) ENIAC JTI in nanoelectronics on industrial application-driven developments for next generation technologies. ARTEMIS JTI developing industrial platforms for embedded systems responding to industry requirements. Ambient Assisted Living – market-oriented R&D on solutions for ageing-well. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) Energy Efficient Buildings; Factories of the Future; Green Cars Cooperation; Marie Curie; Ideas Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) Other ICT related EU funding sources
