In the context of activities to take advantage of opportunities arising as a result of the association to EU 7-th Framework Programme, the Academy of Sciences of Moldova together with the European Commission – DG Research and Innovation organized a video conference regarding call FP7-REGPOT-2012-2013-1 (Specific Programme "Capacities", Theme "Research Potential") on November 14, 2011.

This activity is focused on excellent research entities from the EU's Convergence regions (Moldova is now fully eligible for this Programme). The excellent research entities are selected to implement own research strategy, proposing an Action Plan, taking into account the SWOT analysis, in close cooperation with 'partnering organisations'.

The Action Plan should include the following coherent measures:

The main criteria – mono-applicant projects, involving cooperation with at least 3 outstanding research 'partnering organisations' established in at least 3 different Member States or Associated Countries, other than that of the applicant.

Important note: this is the last FP7 call – no more calls will be launched in 2012 (for the 2013 budget) because the budgets of the last two years are merged into a single call. Deadline: January 3, 2012.

Presentation of Dr. Stefan Weiers is available in electronic format.
