Objective ICT-2013.11.4: Supplements to Strengthen Cooperation in ICT R&D in an Enlarged European Union
The target is to reinforce the cooperation across the enlarged European Union and to strengthen the integration of the European Research Area in ICT.
Integration is characterized by the level of collaboration between relevant organizations within the Member and Associated States and by the appropriate EU-dimension brought into the proposed research results and solutions.
In view of reaching the above target, support will go to the participation of additional partners in on-going FP7/ICT projects with the aim to increase the level of expertise, broaden the scope and/or speed up developments.
Proposals must be presented by the coordinator of the on-going project. In order to ensure the widest impact across the Member and Associated States and European Research Area, the additional partners must be located in countries not already present in the existing consortium and preferably located in countries that are underrepresented at programme level. The funding requested should represent a reasonable extension of the on-going project to achieve the goals of the objective; not exceeding 30% of the Commission funding of the existing project or EUR 1 million, whichever is the lower.
• Reinforced cooperation and better exploitation of ICT R&D synergies across the enlarged European Union.
