1 EURADE How to form a consortium Maastricht University – Centre for Contract Research Professional acquisition and management of research funding is both a complex process as well as an overall new mindset! The Centre for Contract Research manages this process and assists in the further development of such a mindset.

2 Centre for Contract Research EU Funding: FP 7 FP7 stands for Seventh Framework Programme for Research & Technological Development The EUs main instrument for funding research in Europe Supports research in selected priority areas Implemented by the European Commission (EC) Running from 2007 to 2013 Total budget = 53,2 Euro An important budget increase from FP6

3 Centre for Contract Research FP 7: Structure Made up of 4 main specific programmes Plus a specific programme on nuclear research (Euratom &JRC) Integration of the international dimension into all specific programmes The budget of the Cooperation specific programme is the largest one (around 60% of the total budget)

4 Centre for Contract Research FP7 Main programmes and themes

5 Centre for Contract Research FP7 Budget outline maximum EC financial participation million (80389 million CAD) nuclear research and training activities 2751 million (4377 million CAD)

6 Centre for Contract Research What types of FP 7 projects exist? Collaborative Projects (CPs) Research projects, Integrated Projects (IPs): ambitious, large scale projects, objective driven research Specific Targeted Research Project (STREPs): objective driven research more limited in scope than IPs Specific International Cooperation Action (SICAs): R&D projects with developing countries or emerging economies (ICPC) Networks of Excellence (NoEs) Instruments to overcome the fragmentation of the European research landscape in a given area

7 Centre for Contract Research What types of FP 7 projects exist? (2) Coordination & Support Actions (CSAs) Coordination Action (CAs): coordination of research activities (events / studies / expert groups etc.) Specific Support Action (SSAs): support to research activities and policies (designed to underpin the implementation of FP 7) (fact findings / feasibility studies / data dissemination etc.)
