Finally they are there! The FP7 calls for 2012 have been published on 20 July 11. After some technical problems they are now all available - for the first time ever on the Research participant portal.
The Participant Portal has become the European Commission's single authoritative website for the publication of FP7 calls. The FP7 call-related information is no longer published on CORDIS. Users of the 'Find a call' section on CORDIS are redirected to the relevant pages of the 'FP7 Calls' section of the Participant Portal. Also the Electronic submission system (EPSS) is now hosted on this single entry portal.
The calls are worth € 7 billion - the biggest ever calls for proposals, up by 9 % from last year. Their focus lies on innovation and the promotion of SMEs. Projects are expected to tackle today's challenges, in particular climate change, energy and food security, the need for greater resource efficiency, health and our ageing population. To add two years of healthy life for the average European by 2020 is a major goal.
