Regions of Knowledge - eHealth

This year's call for proposals of the Regions of Knowledge Initiative (FP7) is set to focus on e-Health. The aim of the RoK initiative is to strengthen the research potential of European regions through the development of research-driven clusters on a regional basis, based on a triple-helix partnership of universities, research centres and public authorities. A minimum of three regions from three different Member States must be involved in each bid.

The 2010 call, likely to be launched at the end of July, will fund:
- analysis, development and implementation of research agendas for regional clusters;
- mentoring of regions with a less-developed research profile by highly developed ones;
- initiatives to improve integration; and
- dissemination activities.

Integrated & Sustainable Urban Development

The URBACT II programme has launched a Call for Proposals for the creation of 12 new Thematic Networks and 3 new Working Groups on integrated and sustainable urban development issues. In particular, this Call is aimed at supporting European cities to deal with the challenges and consequences of either the economic crisis and climate change. Additionally, project proposals must address one of the 16 Priority topics defined for this Call.

Projects approved will focus on fostering exchange and learning among cities and other urban players, capitalising on knowledge, and disseminating good practices. By setting up Local Support Groups, producing Local Action Plans, and through transnational networking, these projects will both impact local policies and link into the priorities of their current EU co-financed Regional Operational Programmes.

Deadline: 25 September
