Brussels, Nov 2003
In the context of the mid-term revision of the EURATOM work programme, the European Commission has published a call for expressions of interest (EoI) that will help define the technical content and scope of future calls for proposals under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).
The European Commission invites the submission of EoI to participate in research actions for topics in the thematic priorities management of radioactive waste, radiation protection, and other activities in the field of nuclear technologies and safety. This invitation does not apply to the thematic priority fusion energy research.
Submissions of EoI are invited from those organisations or groups of organisations from the Member States, Acceding Countries and Associated States that intend to form consortia (which may also include entities from third countries and international organisations) with a view to participating in research actions for topics that could be the subject of future calls for proposals.
EoI for Networks of Excellence, Integrated Projects and Integrated Infrastructure Initiatives (the new instruments of FP6) are solicited. This invitation does not apply to the other types of instruments that are used in Euratom FP6. A guide for submitters, online submission form, help desk address and further information relevant to this invitation to submit EoI are available at the following web address: http://www.cordis.lu/eoi/fp6-euratom/ Remarks: The deadline for submitting EoI documents is 19 March 2004.
EoI must be prepared as indicated in the guide for submitters and must be sent using the online submission form only.
