Brussels, Nov 2003
The European Commission has published a call for expressions of interest (EoI) in the priority area 'sustainable energy systems' as part of the mid-term revision of the work programme that will define the technical content of future calls for proposals.
The Commission invites the submission of EoI to participate in research actions for topics in the thematic priority 6.1.ii (sustainable energy systems - research activities having an impact in the medium and longer term) of the specific programme 'integrating and strengthening the ERA.' This invitation does not apply to the other thematic priorities or other types of activities.
Submissions of EoI are invited from those organisations or groups of organisations from the Member States, Associated Candidate Countries and other Associated States intending to form consortia (which may also include entities from third countries and international organisations) to participate in research actions for topics that could be the subject of future calls for proposals.
Submissions of EoI are particularly welcome for Integrated Projects and Networks of Excellence (the new instruments of FP6), as well as for specific targeted research projects and coordination actions. This invitation does not apply to the other types of instrument. A guide for submitters, online submission form, help desk address and further information relevant to this invitation to submit EoI is available at the following web address: http://www.cordis.lu/eoi/sustdev-energy/ Remarks: The deadline for submitting EoI documents is 19 March 2004.
