The “People” is a specific Programme of the EU Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). The actions under the “People” Programme focus on mobility of researchers towards development of their scientific experience and career. The Programme is open to all domains of scientific and technological research and contains schemes for international mobility with Third Countries which are neither EU Member States (MS) nor Associated to FP7 Countries (AC). To promote a submission of joint proposals of EECA research organisations and European researchers the filled Questionnaires are posted here.
Results of the previous Sixth Framework Programme show that the most applicable scheme among EECA(Eastern European and Central Asian) countries is the IIF scheme whereas for USA and Canada is OIF and almost no OIF projects were with the EECA countries. But OIF scheme can be beneficial for EECA research organizations which can host the qualified researchers from the EU and AC for implementation of the research project for the period of between 1 and 2 years. EU grant will cover travel and allowance expenses of researchers and costs for implementation of research in host organizations: fixed amount of € 500 per researcher-month for non-laboratory research projects or € 800 per researcher-month for laboratory based projects; 3% of the total EC contribution for the management activities and 10% of direct costs except for subcontractors to overheads.
The goal of IncoNet EECA project “S&T International Cooperation Network for Eastern European and Central Asian Countries” is to stenghten the scientific and technological cooperation between the EU Member States and Associated Countries on the one hand and the Eastern European and Central Asian countries on the other. The IncoNet EECA project includes activities aiming at: an enhanced participation of researchers from EECA countries in FP7 “Cooperation”, “People”, “Capacities” actions. For “People” programme the project participants prepared a presentation of the programme (in Russian) and monthly disseminate Newsletters.
There is lack of information about research organizations in the EECA countries, which are interested in hosting of the EU MS/AC researchers for the period of between 1 and 2 years.
The host organisations in the EECA countries should meet the following requirements:
The purpose of this questionnaire is to collect information about research organizations from EECA countries for potential hosting of European researchers with the aim to implement research project under IOF.
To promote a submission of joint proposals of EECA research organisations and European researchers for IOF competition within FP7 “People” programme the filled in Questionnaires will be posted here on the web-site, announced to and disseminated among Mobility National Contact Points of the EU MS and AC.
