|Dear Subscriber, |
Welcome to the May 2012 issue of the EPN Consulting Newsletter that is received by over 1,000 selected professionals in Europe.
This month we send the newsletter a bit late due to holidays in Europe and in the UK plus heavy involvement in assisting clients in preparing project proposals.
This period is rich of professional events organised across Europe; besides, a number of Information Days will be soon held in Brussels to disseminate information on the next FP7 calls for proposals. As a matter of fact, those calls are the last ones within the 7th Framework Programme
goals and rules before the new Horizon 2020
programme due to start in Jan 2014.
EPN Consulting is available to provide assistance to public and private organisations that would like to see their ideas converted into a sound proposal to be submitted. EPN Consulting is also an ideal partner for your project consortium as we have got a lot of experience in dealing with EC projects.
Contact us to know more about how we can help you.

Lots of new FP7 calls will open in July 2012
As usual, in July a number of FP7 (7th Framework Programme) calls for proposals regarding several areas (Transport, Security, Environment, Energy, SMEs, etc.) are expected for publications.
We invite all our readers to go through their to-do list and think of strategic priorities of their organisation (either public or private, large or small) as there is a good chance that a funding scheme may be available to suit their needs and EPN Consulting can help them identify it and prepare a good proposal.
Heavy competition is expected so we advise you to start this process on time and get in touch with us as soon as possible for a free inquiry.
P.S. Do you know that Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) can claim up to 75% for their research activities? According to the European Commission rules do you qualify as a SME? Check here!
Statistics of proposals submitted to the FP7 ICT-9 call
If some of you submitted a proposal within the ICT call 9 that closed last 17 April 2012 you may be interested in knowing how many proposals were submitted per topic and kind of projects.
Here you can find some interesting numbers.

The Website of the Month: The Transport Research Innovation Portal (TRIP)

The Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP) gives an overview of research activities at European and national level.
Formerly TRIP was known as the Transport Research Knowledge Centre (TRKC). For TRIP both the website and content have been enhanced.
