Subject: Call 3 announcement

Dear colleague,

First of all we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas Christmas
and the very best for 2008!

The 3rd ICT Call, objective 'Intelligent Content and Semantics' was
published on 4 December 2007 with a closing date of 8 April 2008. The
budget will be the same as for the first ICT Call (50 M euro). We
invite you to take a look at our information online which gives you further
details on the scope of the call, individual research lines and
planned budget allocation, including excerpts from the Work Programme,
You will also find background information specific to this Call, a
presentation made by Mr Roberto Cencioni during the recent Information
Days, an overview of the results of Call 1 and brief project synopses
of those proposals which were successful under the first Call.

As mentioned above, Information Days were held in Luxembourg on the
12th and 13th of December.  The aim of the event was to give potential
proposers information about Call 3.  Over 300 people registered to
listen to key speakers present some of the successful results of
projects financed under FP6.  Speakers from industry gave their views
on what it takes to have research results transformed into good
commercial products.  There was also a first peek at some of the
projects which were chosen to receive financial support under the
first Call.  And last but not least, a very popular Skills Marketplace
session took place where participants in the Information Days had the
chance to present themselves, their organisations and their skills.
We have put the presentations made by the individual speakers online, together
with the slides from the participants in the Skills Marketplace, and a
list of participants in the meeting.

If you intend to submit a proposal under the 3rd Call and would like
some initial feedback from Commission Staff, we are offering an
enquiry service where you can submit a brief outline of your proposal
and receive an answer from one of our Project Officers within a few
working days.  More information on what the outline should contain and
how it should be presented can be found on

We are also launching a public consultation with regard to future
research directions and priorities beyond 2008.  We invite you to
contribute to the discussion and thus ultimately contribute to the
shaping of the Work Programme 2009-2010.  The Work Programme will
drive ICT calls and operations in 2009-2010, with a total budget in
excess of 2 billion euro.  You can make your contribution here

Best regards,
On behalf of Mr Roberto Cencioni, Head of Unit
