The Latin American Node of FuturICT (http://futurict.unam.mx ) is launching a call to identify potential collaborators in Latin America with research groups within the FuturICT FET Flagship project (http://futurict.eu ).
FuturICT is a major project which aims at tackling the global challenges of humanity in the 21st century. Its goals, structure, and proposed methods can be found at http://www.futurict.eu/the-project/proposal
Latin American researchers, companies, organizations, and governments interested in participating in FuturICT are invited to submit a two page proposal describing their interests, expertise, and contact details. The proposal should specify in which aspect of FuturICT the collaboration is proposed. At the Latin American Node, we will integrate the proposals and facilitate the contact with particular groups in Europe and elsewhere.
Please submit your proposal before January 7th, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org
