Frustrated with the EC Science in Society Programme? Now’s your chance to have your say and change it for Horizon 2020!

The European Commission has initiated a survey to evaluate and assess the future of the Science in Society Actions Programme.

The study aims to find out what kind of achievements the programme has made so far, and which direction it should take in the future. Science and Society Actions promotes public awareness of science, gender equality and ethical discourse about research. The survey can be taken until 9 April, and the results will be made available in August this year.

Likely calls to be released under Health, Environment and Science in Society FP7 themes

top secretThe Work Programmes are still being finalised and due for release in July, but I have obtained information about some of the likely calls that may come out.

I am excited that one of the areas I have info on is the new Science in Society theme. I also have updated information on the FP7 Health theme and also an update on the FP7 Environment theme which also has the anticipated date for the Information Day- the key opportunity to find partners and discover more about the calls for proposals. 

This information is highly confidential and for this reason has been placed on our I drive. You can access this and info on the other likely calls in different thematic areas here: I:\R&KEO\Public\RDU\Draft Work Programmes for 2012-13 . The information is to be treated with caution as it is based on draft documentation and is for BU staff only; this is not for circulation.

Reading likely areas of funding in FP7 is critical as it gives you months of extra preparatory time and a fantastic head start on writing your proposal. If you are thinking of making a submission, send me an email and I can help you pull your application together.
