Description of Presentation: Find out new ways to promote your transatlantic research collaborations and speed researcher mobility (for post-docs, researchers, faculty) through the European Union’s 7th Framework Program for Research.  FP7 supports collaborations and welcomes the participation of U.S. researchers in proposals with at least three different EU Member States participants.   The calls for proposals for Workprogramme 2011 of FP7 are open until November/December 2010.  Learn how this and future rounds of funding can advance your collaborations with European colleagues.
