The Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) is Europe's main financial instrument for achieving the Lisbon Agenda's goals of growth, competitiveness and employment. It is a key pillar for the creation of a single European Research Area (ERA). The facts are impressive: Over 50 Billion EUR of funding spanning over 7 years.
On November 12th 2010 the Evaluation Expert Group published its final report on the Interim Evaluation of the Seventh Framework Programme and it stated "an interim evaluation has a vital role to play in taking stock, in putting forward proposals for the remaining years of FP7 and in drawing out lessons that can feed into the planning - already in its early stages - of a successor programme."
This event provides you with the opportunity to share your business activities and project ideas with potential partners. There will be project presentation opportunities and a poster session to facilitate your event network activities.
To involve the participants to the discussions, the event is organised in various sessions. The first one in the first day will focus on introducing the results of the interim evaluation in an interactive way. In addition, round-table discussion sessions will be held with a panel of experts giving their advice and experiences, taking questions from the audience as well as posing questions to them. Smaller groups will have the opportunity to discuss and focus on issues of great interest. The organisers will also provide networking opportunities to the interested participants.
