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 http://cordis.europa.eu/ist/kct/fp7_call_3.htm 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 http://cordis.europa.eu/ist/kct/eventcall3-in-motion.htm, 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 http://cordis.europa.eu/ist/kct/fp7_call_3.htm 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 http://cordis.europa.eu/ist/kct/fp7-consultation.htm.
