Consultation: Green Paper on a Common Strategic Framework for future EU Research and Innovation Funding

On 9th February 2011, the European Commission presented a Green Paper which proposes major changes to EU research and innovation funding to make participation easier, increase scientific and economic impact and provide better value for money. The changes, to be introduced in the next EU budget after 2013, would bring together the current Framework Programme for research, the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme, and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.

ZEROPOWER kick-off meeting - London 19th January 2011


The ZEROPOWER consortium helds the first (kick-off) meeting in London on Jan 19 2011.

The ZEROPOWER project (Co-ordinating Research Efforts Towards Zero-Power ICT) is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme within the ICT theme of the Seventh Framework Programme for Research of the European Commission.

The goal of this project is to create a coordination activity among consortia involved in “Toward Zero-Power ICT” research projects (FET proactive call FP7-ICT-2009-5, Objective 8.6), NANOPOWER is one of them, and communities of scientists interested in energy harvesting and low power, energy efficient ICT. This activity is aimed at assessing the impact of our research efforts and proposing measures to increase the visibility of ICT-Energy related initiatives to the scientific community, targeted industries and to the public at large through exchange of information, dedicated networking events and media campaigns.

fet¹¹ The European Future Technologies Conference and Exhibition will take place next May in Budapest


The European Commission’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) scheme, ERCIM (the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics) and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, under the auspices of the Hungarian Presidency of the European Union, are organising ƒet11 “The European Future Technologies Conference and Exhibition” to be held in Budapest (Hungary), on 4th-5th May 2011.

The European Future Technologies (FET) Conference and Exhibition aims to be the European forum for facilitating international cross-disciplinary dialogue and discussion on visions and challenges for frontier research in future and emerging information technologies. This unique event will give you the opportunity to take an early look at what are likely to become tomorrow’s science successes and groundbreaking technologies based on ICT-led research. With “Science beyond Fiction” as the overall theme, ƒet11 will demonstrate how science can help to make possible what fiction could conceive -and even more!
