Similar to previous REGPOT calls, exchange of know-how and experience, recruitment of experienced researchers, upgrading or aquisition of research equipment and maintenance as well as organisation of workshops, conferences, dissemination and promotional activities will be funded.

In the projects, cooperation with at least 3 outstanding reesarch "partnering organisations" established in at least 3 different Member States or Associated Countries, other than that of the applicant will be required!

Projects from this call might be starting in mid 2010.
