EC FP6 Design Studies FP6 3 blocks of activities: Integrating European Research Structuring the ERAStrengthening the ERA Research and Innovation Human resources & mobility Research infrastructures Science and Society Transnational Access Integrating Activities Communication Network Development Design Studies Construction of New Infrastructure Accompanying Measures CARE BENE HIPPI
FP6 Design Studies HIPPI – JRA: improving existing infrastructure HIPPI – JRA: improving existing infrastructure Design Studies: FS and TPW on new infrastructures Clear European dimension and interest Must “systematically explore EIB and Structural Funds” Infrastructure can be outside EU, if EU participates Upgrade to existing infrastructure, if replaces new
FP6 Design Studies Feasibility Studies: “will aim at laying the conceptual foundations of a potential new or enhanced infrastructure. This could consist in the basic feasibility study of a specific new facility or in exploring a new fundamental technology or technique underpinning a whole new concept. Alternatively, a feasibility study could cover the detailed engineering design of a proposed infrastructure, in particular in relation to its most technologically advanced aspects (i.e. excluding the detailed design of standard elements of the new infrastructure). “ Technical Preparatory Work: “will cover the development and testing of components, subsystems, materials or techniques (including dedicated software) that are critical for the future development of a new or enhanced infrastructure. Support will however not be provided for preparatory work based on existing or proven techniques or technologies, nor when it aims at reproducing available components or materials.” NB Contributions to capital investments are excluded

Funding Assume DS will be 4 years end 2008 Can get 10M€ from EC Must find at least the same from existing sources Need to check FP6 rules, e.g. MICE beam and inf? “Third party” funding? Matching funding/Work Package or total? Need to check what “capital investments” are Within these limits, there are no limits!
Next Steps Get approval of plans from EMCOG- RE Get approval from ESGARD- RE Contact with Brussels- RE Determine requirements at RAL- PRN/RE Form Steering Groups- RE et al Form teams- SGs Develop plans for proposal- All All must start now!
