|Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP)|
Publication: The European Commission has published the Call for proposals under the 2011 work programme ‘People’ of the 7th EC Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities in the Official Journal of the European Union (2010/C 196)
About: This action seeks to enhance industry-academia cooperation in terms of research training, career development and knowledge sharing, in particular with SMEs, and including traditional manufacturing industries
All Marie Curie actions have a bottom-up approach, i.e. research fields are chosen freely by the applicants. All domains of research and technological development addressed under the EC Treaty are eligible for funding (except areas of research covered by the EURATOM Treaty)
Participants: Participants under this action are one or more research organisations (e.g.universities/research centres) and one or more commercial enterprises, in particular SMEs, that propose a project based on a joint cooperation programme. There must be at least one participant from each of the two sectors and from at least two different Member States or associated countries.
Above this minimum, the participation of other third countries and of international organisations is possible under the conditions provided by the FP7 Rules for Participation.
The participants recruit and/or host eligible researchers and contribute directly to the implementation of longer-term cooperation programmes established between them in line with the objectives of this action
Eligibility of researchers: : Exchange of research staff can be for early-stage or experienced researchers' level and can also include technical and research managerial staff. To be eligible for exchange, staff members of a participant institution must have been active continuously for at least one year (full-time equivalent) at that institution. The support granted to eligible researchers will be for periods of 2 to 24 months.
Newly recruited staff from outside of the partnership must be experienced researchers. They will be recruited for a period of between 12 and 24 months.
Rules of mobility and nationality applicable to eligible researchers:
Newly recruited researchers can be of any nationality. They must comply with the rule for mobility at the time of recruitment by the host organisation.
Seconded staff members must have been active in the seconding institute for at least 12
months prior to the secondment.
In the context of a collaboration established between more than two participants, a limited level of inter-sector mobility may be allowed between two participants in the same Member State or associated country, within the frame of the overall coherent knowledge sharing plan for all the participants and up to a maximum of 30% of the researchers’ months in the project.
Funding: European Union support may take one or more of the following forms:
Cost related to staff secondments between both sectors within the partnership; Costs rFP7-PEOPLE-2011-IAPPelated to the temporary hosting in either sector of experienced researchers recruited from outside the partnership; Networking costs and the organisation of workshops and conferences enhancing the inter-sector experience and knowledge exchange of both staff members from the participant organisations and researchers from outside the partnership; For participating SMEs only: costs related to small equipment expenses up to a maximum of 10% of the total European Union contribution to the SME participant
There is not an official upper budget limit for individual networks but it is expected that the total costs that cover living and mobility allowance, expenses of eligible researchers among others for a network ranges within 2-4 M€
Deadline to submit proposals: 07 December 2010
Us informem de la propera convocatòria Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways
Objecte: atorgar ajuts per finançar xarxes de cooperació científica entre la indústria i el món acadèmic i que recolzin l’aprenenentatge en recerca, el desenvolupament de les carreres científiques i la posada en comú del coneixement generat. Les accions Marie Curie poden cobrir totes les àrees (bottom-up approach)
Sol·licitants: Cada proposta ha d'incloure un mínim d’un soci industrial i un soci acadèmic de 2 països membres de la Unió Europea o països associats
Dotació i durada: Les xarxes cobreixen el 100% de despeses elegibles de personal contractat i la seva recerca associada. No hi ha un finançament superior límit per a cada xarxa, però s'espera que totes les activitats es puguin cobrir amb un màxim de 2 a 4 milions d’euros.
Presentació de sol·licituds: El termini de presentació de les propostes és el 07 de desembre del 2010.
A l'Institut de Recerca posem a la vostra disposició les bases de la convocatòria. També les podreu trobar clicant el següent enllaç:
