Workshop about FP7

On 22. December 2006, the European Commission started the "Framework Program 7" (FP-7), which outlines the funding for research from 2007 - 2013. Today I took the opportunity to participate in a workshop at Leeds Uni, organised by the UK Research Office (UKRO). Very interesting, some things disappointing (no full cost will be reimbursed), some things encouraging (large overall volume, simpler submission process). I will have to dig a bit deeper into this, to find good opportunities for joint projects, in Augmented Reality, Computer Vision, Robotics, and Human-Computer Interaction.
