MARIE CURIE – Last RTN-Call in FP6 just published

The European
Commission has just published the last call in the Research Training
Networks (RTN) scheme of Marie Curie in the 6th Framework Programme.
The call has a budget of 220 Mio. EUR. Deadline for an outline
proposal will be September 28, 2005 (2-stage submission; deadline for
full proposal: February 14, 2006). Proposals from all areas of
scientific and technological research of interest to the European
Communities are welcome.

A Research Training Network consists of a consortium of institutions
located in different (European) countries that propose a common
research project. This shall serve as an instrument for providing
training. A network consortium should include partners (e.g.
universities, research organisations, SME, international
organisations, etc.) from at least three Member or Associated states
of which two must be EU-Member or Candidate Countries and is typically
ranging from 6 to 14 teams.

RTNs are primarily directed towards the training of researchers with
less than 4 years of research experience. Experienced researchers
(4-10 years of experience or Ph.D.) can also be involved for the
purpose of transfer of knowledge. The researchers are appointed
directly by the network for up to 3 years.

The Commission is going to keep this „Research Training Network”
scheme also in the 7th Framework Programme („Marie Curie Networks”;
MCN). Drafts on this future scheme can be accessed in a Commission
working paper, which is published on the KoWi-Homepage
