5 17/3/2009 IPs are designed to generate the knowledge required to respond to the Challenges of ICT in FP7 by integrating the critical mass of activities and resources needed to achieve ambitious, clearly defined scientific and technological objectives of a European dimension Each IP should integrate the types of activities needed to obtain the goals integrate the critical mass of resources needed to obtain the goals integrate elements of the development chain to attain high-impact goals support industry-academia collaboration including SMEs What is an Integrating Project ?
6 17/3/2009 Scale of ambition is limited, reflected in limited activities, duration and size of consortium more typical of a STREP Goals are ambitious. The proposers include key industry players. A full range of activities covering a substantial part of the development chain is envisaged. Broad industry sector impact is foreseen. Effective project management plans are in place IP - Scope

8 17/3/2009 Purpose: Ambitious objective driven research with a programme approach Target audience: Industry (incl. SMEs), research institutions. Universities – and in some cases potential end-users Typical duration: 36 – 60 months Optimum consortium: 10 – 20 participants Total EU contribution: 4 – 25m (average around 10m) Possibility for competitive calls for enlargement of consortium later FP6 Experience of Integrating Projects
9 17/3/2009 Small or medium scale focused projects are designed to generate the knowledge required to improve European competitiveness and to meet the needs of society or Community policies: by improving existing or developing new products, processes or services and/or by proving the viability of new technologies offering potential economic advantage What is a STREP ?
