• Irish participation in EU FP7 (2007 - 2013) funded competitive marine research projects. 2009 Supplement

      O'Sullivan, G; Twomey, S (Marine Institute, 2010)
      The EU Framework Research Programme (FP), and in the current context the 7th Framework Programme (FP7: 2007-2013), continues to be a major source of competitive R & D funding for Irish marine researchers. The 2009 Supplement provides information on new FP7 research awards granted in 2009 to Irish marine researchers and up-dates the 2007-2008 Report published in June 2009. Seventeen research projects are profiled including three 2008 awards (STANDPOINT, WAVETRAIN II and AIRSEA) and fourteen 2009 awards bringing total participation in FP7 over the period 2007 to 2009 to 43 projects worth over €17.5 million in grant-aid. This figure is already in excess of the €10.6m (59) projects won in the FP6 (2002-2006) Programme and represents 11.5% of the total Irish drawdown to-date (FP7: 2007-2009) of €152.7million.

      The EU Framework Research Programme (FP) is a major source of competitive marine R & D funding for Irish Researchers. This report describes Irish marine research successes in the first two years (2007-2008) of the seven year 7th Framework Programme (FP7: 2007-2013). Irish researchers are currently participating in 22 collaborative marine research projects worth over €163 million of which €8.8 million goes to Irish researchers by way of grant-aid. This European grant-aid in turn contributes to the implementation of research priorities identified in the national Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (SSTI: 2006- 2013) and its marine component, the Sea Change Strategy(2007-2013). The Irish drawdown of EU grant-aid for marine research represents an impressive 10% of the Irish total drawdown over the period 2007-2008.
