"The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007 - 2013)"

According to the IST4Balt Workplan it was originally planned to prepare the training course on FP6 only. The IST4Balt Training Course on FP7 was prepared as additional course under Workpackage 6 "IST training for Baltic States" by EDNES in close collaboration with other project partners. Such decision was taken due to the fact that the IST4Balt project covers the period of transition from FP6 to FP7. The Training Course interface represents Flash applications, which are available on-line and as stand-alone applications .

"The Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities, contributing to the creation of the European Research Area and to innovation (2002 to 2006) and its Information Society Technologies (IST) Priority"

This IST4Balt Training Course was developed by EDNES under Workpackage 6 "IST training for Baltic States". Preparation of the IST4Balt training course was based on the experience gained by EDNES in preparation of training courses for numerous FP4 TAP and FP5 IST projects: (STACCIS TAP, WISTCIS, TELEBALT and TELESOL IST).

The training course is devoted to goals, strategic objectives, structure, instruments and thematic priorities of FP6; structure of proposals, electronic proposal preparation and submission software; consortium building and partner search, etc. It also covers the IST Priority of FP6. The main idea of the course is to explain step-by-step how to participate in the FP6 and the IST. A special lecture is devoted to the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the EC.

The IST4Balt training course consists of 9 lectures (each 0.5-1.0 hours long). The lectures are available interactively at the IST4Balt main Web-site at EDNES. The training course will become a part of the IST4Balt conferences and workshops in face-to-face mode. RTU, Latvia, INFOBALT, Lithuania, and Inforing AS, Estonia, along with other Baltic States participants, will assist EDNES in preparation of the course summaries in the Baltic languages.

The on-line version of the training course was developed using Flash technology. The latest version of Flash Player is free and available here.
