Challenges of insecurity are further complicated by the changing nature of conflict that involves multi-level, intra-state conflicts of extended duration and marked by recurring cycles of violent conflict. Current institutional approaches and arrangements have been inadequate to address these changing patterns. In response, UNICEF is implementing this four-year peacebuilding, education and advocacy programme, in recognition that insecurity is a primary development challenge of our time and a significant barrier to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), including the right to universal primary education.

FP7 Calls > Cooperation - Research Participant Portal | Funding Opportunities in Programmes Supporting Projects & Research | Scoop.it

The European Commission has published its 'FET-Open Xtrack' Call for Proposals as a  part of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). By means of a lighter submission process, faster evaluation and simpler project implementation (Xtrack), this call aims to support the field of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) through the exploration of new and alternative ideas that, because of their risky or non-conventional nature, would not be supported elsewhere in the ICT Work Programme. This Call seeks foundational breakthroughs as crucial steps towards radically new forms and uses of information and information technologies as well as novelty that comes from new, high-risk ideas rather than from the refinement of current ICT approaches. New inter-disciplinary collaborations, possibly with prominent and internationally-recognized non-EU research teams where these can provide a significant added value are also encouraged.

FET-Open seeks proposals on radically new concepts and visions of the nature and use of information and information technologies, grounded in scientifically plausible and often interdisciplinary ideas on how to achieve them. In spite of the high risk of failure, FETOpen projects can be the first step on the way towards future European scientific and industrial leadership in areas that today simply do not exist yet. FET-Open is specifically designed to be responsive to such fresh thinking. It aims to give promising but still fragile ideas the opportunity to mature into a credible and well-founded new direction of research.

DG Environment – Project Funding Opportunity

DG Environment – Project Funding Opportunity | Funding Opportunities in Programmes Supporting Projects & Research | Scoop.it

Indicative project budget: €1M. Deadline: 20 October 2012.

The Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) aims to support, improve, encourage and promote innovation in enterprises. Public procurement is one of the most important demand-side policy drivers promoting economic growth and European economic competitiveness. Public procurement in the EU represents slightly less than 20% of the EU’s GDP – more than €2 Trillion. If 2% of this budget could be used for purchasing innovations, a significant demand could be generated, helping innovative firms to get broader market access. In this context, the Commission invites public and private bodies to submit proposals for projects in the public procurement of eco-innovative solutions.
