Substantial increase of EU Research Grants – SusChem organizes FP7-info-day 2010 for the chemical industry
In 2010 several hundreds of millions of Euros will be available for funding innovative projects in the chemical industry. In fact, this year the EC will launch a large number of relevant calls for proposals such as:
• FP7 NMP (Nano-Materials-Production) with topics such as modelling and control of intensified process systems for chemical and biotechnological processes and new materials for new energy efficient building components or lighter vehicles.
• FP7 KBBE (Knowledge Based Bio Economy) including novel sources of biomass and bio-products as efficient production platforms of fine chemicals.
• FP7 ENVIRONMENT with new technologies that maximise eco-efficiency.
• FP7 ENERGY with materials and technologies for Solar Energy, Bio Energy, CO2 Carbon and Storage.
Deadlines for these programmes are end 2010, beginning 2011. Cefic Members can search GRANT-IT for detailed information on fundable topics or submit their project ideas through our grant assessment service. GRANT-IT is a unique system that provides Cefic members with a single access point and allows search through numerous EU funding programmes specifically filtered for the chemical industry.
On the 4th of June susChem together with the European Commission organizes a FP7-info-day especially for the chemical industry. See the susChem website for futher info and registration: www.suschem.org/...
