  2) European Commission - FP7 Call for Proposals  

We are pleased to share with you the most recent FP7 calls for proposals from the European Commission (http://www.era-can.ca/en/Calls_For_Proposals_41). The specific calls listed on the website have been identified as areas in which the Commission would particularly welcome Canadian participation. They include research in:

·         Energy

·         Environment (including Climate Change)

·         Health

·         Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy

·         Transport (including Aeronautics)

 

There are now almost 200 Canadians, from 25 universities as well as government and private sector organizations, in FP7 projects. It is a great way to leverage resources, strengthen networks, work internationally and bring Europeans to Canada: broadening the capacity and impact of our research. Canadian participation is generally pursued on a self-funded basis although opportunities for support are available where a Canadian contribution is deemed essential to a project’s success.

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invites scientists and administrators from medical schools, universities and research institutions to participate in an educational tour on medical research and graduate education in Germany. The dates are December 4th - December 10th, 2011.

 

The tour will provide an overview of cutting-edge research at German universities, hospitals, research institutions and companies, as well as of graduate education in medicine and related disciplines. Comprehensive information on funding opportunities for cooperation in education and research will also be provided.

 

Researchers and administrators attempting to initiate close cooperation with German colleagues, either in their specific research area or at an institutional level, are strongly encouraged to apply.

 

DAAD is responsible for the organization and implementation of the tour, and will be at your disposal during your stay and for follow-up. All program-related costs in Germany (accommodation, travel, most meals) will be borne by DAAD. Intercontinental travel is at the participants’ expense.

 

Deadline for applications is October 9th, 2011.
