Call for proposals - Bi-regional coordination of S&T cooperation including priority setting and definition of S&T cooperation policies – Activity INCO-NET FP7-INCO-2010-1 Closed!


This INCO-NET call provides an opportunity for the INCO-NET projects, which were selected in the call FP7-INCO-2007-1 to expand their geographical coverage and/or deepen their coordination and structuring activities.

The INCO-NET projects aim at supporting bi-regional dialogues that will:

  • Promote and structure the participation of third countries in the activities of FP7.
  • Promote regional integration (in the sense of major regions outside Europe e.g. Africa, or South East Asia) and will lead to the identification and the prioritisation of common research areas of mutual interest and benefit.
  • Facilitate the uptake and use of common identified research areas and the monitoring of performance and impacts of international S&T cooperation across the Specific Programmes of FP7.
  • Priorities identified in these dialogues on the one hand and priorities of the themes of the Cooperation Programme on the other hand will be brought together to identify priorities of mutual interest and benefit for the work programmes of the corresponding thematic areas.
  • The INCO-NET projects will ensure establishing balanced partnerships, regrouping multiple international stakeholders (partners from research, industry, government and civil society) for research actions. They will also be used for monitoring the implementation of  the S&T priorities. These partnerships will require multidisciplinary approaches to tackle diverse needs at a global, regional and/or country level.

In adition to our useful documents section, further information about the call FP7-INCO-2010-1 can be found at Cordis website.
