1.  General Information


This common call is being published by the below-mentioned institutions between 2nd June and 30th June, 2008 in their respective countries.  Proposals can be submitted until Wednesday, 15th October, 2008, 6pm local time.  It is intended to establish transnational collaborative research projects on a specific area within flood risk management research called:

"Flood resilient communities - managing the consequences of flooding"

The following partner institutions from the CRUE consortium intend to finance the research projects initiated by this call

  • Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW), Austria
  • Environment Agency (EA), England and Wales
  • Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MMM), Finland
  • Flanders Hydraulics Research, Flanders
  • Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Land Use Planning (MEEDDAT), France

  • Scottish Government, Environmental Quality Directorate (SG-EQD), Scotland
  • Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN), Spain
  • Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management (MinVenW), The Netherlands

Funding is granted nationally. This means that each European funding organisation involved funds its own national research institutions or companies collaborating in the joint research projects according to national funding rules.

Therefore, the call is divided into two parts:

  1. A common section, which is published within all partner countiries participating in the call in the same form (Preamble and Part A, "Common Regulations")
  2. National regulations, which are individually published by the funding institutions only in their countries (Part B, "Specific Regulations").  In some cases, funding bodies may decide that Part A of the call is sufficient for their purposes and, therefore, publication of supplementary part B is not necessary.
