    • … overall funding of ~ €32m of which ~€12m to industry
    Ireland in the ICT Programme: 91 projects * Call 3 was a direct repeat of call 1 – hence very large number of proposals and poor success rate Call 1 Call 2 Call 3 * Call 4 Overall Global 17.3% 16.4% 8.5% 20.2% 15% Ireland 20.4% 20.6% 6.8% 23.4% 19%

    • Take a look at Ireland’s participation in the 2007-2008 ICT Work Programme at http://www.fp7ireland.com/Page.aspx?SP=96
  • 9. Take home messages
      • Challenge 1 is a strong area for Ireland
      • 32 out of 93 funded projects, €13.6 million out of ~ €32 million funding
      • But only 3 of the projects have >1 Irish participant
      • Only 3 co-ordinators from Ireland
      • Use the full programme: fund PIs through the ERC, train mobile researchers (success rates 20-70%), build European infrastructure, act as a research provider to lower tech SMEs; fund your outreach programme
  • 10. Remember: the FP7 opportunity is growing by €1 billion a year to you need to think big
  • 11. National Support Network for FP7
    • Resourced by 12 organisations
    • For ICT talk to Stephen O’Reilly and Gerard Kennedy [email_address]
    • [email_address]
    • www.fp7ireland.com
  • 12. Which of these statements is true?
    • Mopping up local funding has displaced FP activity
    • FP7 is very bureaucratic
    • FP7 success rates are very low
    • Irish companies don’t know how to do it
