How to succeed with an EU application!
How do you source information about EU research funding? Vinnova will visit LiU on March 27th for an informational day on the seventh framework programme (FP7).
The framework programme is now in its final year, and the annual budget of approximately EUR 8 billion is the largest so far since the programme’s start in 2007. Today it’s one of the largest external sponsors of research in Sweden.
Vinnova is the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems and is now taking an informational tour to eight locations, starting with Linköping University on March 27.
The purpose is to advise researchers who are not so familiar with the FP7 research programme on how to succeed with an application.
Held at Planck Hall, Fysikhuset on Campus Valla on March 27, the programme will include information on FP7 and funding opportunities, and an exchange of experiences on projects with small and medium-size companies.
“The participants will also get concrete tips from LiU researchers who contributed to various EU projects,” says Linda Forssén, coordinator at the LiU Grants Office.
The informational day is directed not only at the university’s researchers, but also researchers in business, government agencies, and institutions, or people who are generally interested in the EU’s support of research.
