									  New Framework Programme calls for proposals launched by the European Commission

The European Union recently announced the biggest ever set of calls for proposals (invitations to
bid for funds) for research under its Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). In total of €8.1 billion
(in INR ) this worldwide call will support projects and ideas that will tackle issues such as human
health, protecting the environment and finding new solutions to growing challenges linked to
urbanisation and managing waste. The funding – open to organisations and businesses in all EU
Member States and key partner countries including India- makes up the lion's share of the EU's
research budget for 2013.

Out of the total funding, €4.8 billion is dedicated to thematic research priorities like health, bio-
technology, social sciences, transport etc. Special attention will be given to Small and Medium-
sized Enterprises (SMEs) with a funding of about €1.2 billion to develop new products or further
innovate on their offerings. And around €2.7 billion has been allocated to cement Europe's place
as a world class destination for researchers, mainly through individual grants from the European
Research Council (€1.75 billion), and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (€963 million) for training
and mobility.

All these calls for proposals are open to researchers and research institutions from Pakistan.


Details of the calls for proposals, with appropriate links for more information are given below.
Topics which target international cooperation (international partners obligatory) are indicated in
red.
