19th November - The Commission of the European Union have advertised FP7 Call 4 [Press Release]. This is the opportunity to undertake collaborative research into ICT with financial contrinbutions from the Commission. The press release talks of seven challanges, "Pervasive and trustworthy network and service infrastructures", "Cognitive systems, interaction, robotics", "Components, systems, engineering", the comma's are theirs, I want to check up on this, "Towards sustainable and personalised healthcare", "ICT for mobility, environmental stability and energy efficiency" and "ICT for independent living , inclusion and governance". The call also looks to promote research in three new areas of Future and Emerging Technologies, one of which is "Concurrent tera-device computing", you'd think we might be interested in that.
An interesting set of priorities, the Call for Proposal is on Cordis, the EU's Community Research & Development Information site.
