New Funding Opportunities from the European Union

On 10 July 2012 the European Union issued a new set of calls for research funding. These are the last calls under the FP7 programme. For the next 18 months there will be no more calls as this will be the transition phase to the new framework programme called Horizon 2020.

If you're a researcher or company working in the media computing and communication field, these calls may be of special interest.

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) seeking support and advice in applying for any of these (especially the last one) are invited to contact us.
