Whoa Nellie! Big MONEY for promoting Canada-EU research

ERA-Can is a joint initiative of the European Commission and the Government of Canada.  Canadians are eligible to participate in European FP7 projects. In fact, some calls-for-proposals specifically welcome applications from research teams that include Canadians. These “targeted opportunities” for Canadians are identified in the list below in calls-for-proposals currently open in:

Energy – Environment (including Climate Change) – Health – Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy – Transport (including Aeronautics)

Funding levels range from $1M to $9M (That’s in Euros, folks).  Check the links for the deadlines.

Calls for proposals in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the European Commission’s principal funding mechanism for advanced research, focus on specific issues to advance research on major societal and global challenges. They encourage leading researchers from across Europe, in all sectors, to work together with researchers from around the world.
