IT&C Ministry to offer assistance for the second IST projects demand


"I wish to invite all the interested companies, research institutes and universities to apply as numerous as possible within the Information Society Technologies program, starting on June 17th 2003, when the second call for projects' submission was officially launched. This is the first year when Romania participates as a full member of the EU 6th Frame Program. Forming the consortiums in time and finding the proper partners, after agreeing upon an eligible subject, is an important competitive advantage for all the interested parties", said Dan Nica, IT&C Minister, during the official launching of the 2nd Call for IST Projects' submission.

The IST Programme, as part of the EU 6th Frame Program (FP6), has a total budget of 3,625 million Euros. 525 millions were allocated for the 2nd Call, launched on June 17th, with a deadline on October 15th.

THE STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES AND THE BUDGETS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Advanced Display Technology ...........................................................................25 Million Euros
Optical, Optic and Electronic, Photon-based Functional Components .................45 Million Euros
Embeded Systems .............................................................................................50 Million Euros
Open Development Platforms for Products and Services ....................................55 Million Euros
Cognitive Systems .............................................................................................25 Million Euros
Applications and Services for Mobile Telephony Users and Employees ..............60 Million Euros
Entertainment Multimedia Content ......................................................................55 Million Euros
GRID Systems for Complex Problems ...............................................................45 Million Euros
Risk Management Improvement ........................................................................30 Million Euros
e-Inclusion ........................................................................................................30 Million Euros

Instrumentele programului IST sunt: proiectele integrate, retelele de excelenta, proiectele de cercetare, care vizeaza o chestiune specifica, actiunile de coordonare si sustinere, primele doua fiind considerate elemente esentiale pentru atingerea obiectivelor strategice ale Programului Cadru 6.

The instruments of the IST program are: Integrated Projects, Networks of Excellence and Targeted Research Projects, Coordination and Support Actions, with an emphasize on the first two.

The fundamental principles of FP6, implemented by the European Union, are:

  • EU would finance only projects involving partners from different countries,
  • The funds are allocated according to the proposals' competition announcements published by the Commission,
  • The projects can be financed through FP6 only in case they do reflect the published priorities,
  • The quality and the technological importance of the project is to be appreciated by an average of 5 experts,
  • The funds of the frame program cannot be used as subsidizes for research-oriented organizations.

    The IT&C Ministry will offer assistance during the 2nd Call for proposals.
