On 1 February 2007 the Commission and German Presidency are organising an Information Day for people wanting to participate in research activities under FP7. The event will take place in KÃ¶ln, Germany.
This is a "not to be missed" opportunity to meet other researchers having similar interests, and to built the consortia necessary to make a research proposal.
Entry is free of charge, and the event is expected to be heavily attended.
In preparation for attending the event, we encourage you to prepare and publish on the event's website a profile of yourself, and your organisation's research interests. If you are forming a research consortium, it may also help you to provide a short profile of the skills / industrial expertise you are seeking from others to complete your consortium. This information supports our networking objective of allowing you to be "found" during the event, and also allowing you to find others.
The ICT Information Day will be opened by Dr. Annette Schavan, German Federal Minister of Education and Research and Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for Information Society and Media, and the rest of the day will be organised as an information fair, with no formal agenda.
I would like to remind you that while this event will cover all ICT-related activities under FP7, the DG INFSO Unit F3 is organising an information event on the first calls for proposals under the e-Infrastructure activity of the Capacities specific programme that will take place on 6 February 2007 in Brussels. Further information on the venue will follow.
