Early in 2010 the EU-Russia Working Group on Nanotechnologies agreed on running the second EU-Russia Coordinated Call in Nanotechnologies. The EU Commission published a call within FP7 in July 2010. It was expected that a matching call with equal budget enabling 50/50% funding from EU and Russian parties will be published by the Russian Ministry for Education and Science in March 2011.
After completing all the formalities of a call preparation MES plans to publish a call on 18 March within the Activity 2.3 of the Federal Targeted Programme “Research and Development in the Priority Domains of S&T
Complex for the period 2007-2012”. Joint peer-review and proposals selection is envisaged in the beginning of May 2011, funding will be allocated for Russian selected proposals since July 2011.
Further information is available on CORDIS at http://www.cordis.europa.eu/ and will be available at the official Russian domain http://www.zakupki.gov.ru/ and http://www.fcpir.ru/ after a call publication.
The EU-Russia Working Group on Nanotechnologies plans to continue such activities in the future and seeks new opportunities for enhancing of EURussia cooperation in Nano field.
