Successful Project Angels Skype Conference

The first Project Angels Skype conference was held on 19 January 2011 and it was attended by Project Angels from Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Costa Rica and Mexico.
The main issues addressed in the conference were focused on the new Call 9 and on ideas about how to better collaborate and work to increase the participation of Latin American partners in European FP7 ICT projects.

The Project Angels are specifically trained in the understanding of the EU's ICT Programme and EU funding mechanisms. Having received their diploma of having successfully followed the course, they will act locally to help potential project participants with advice on how to participate in EU research programmes.

The - new- AMERICAS project will continue with these efforts and will offer Project Angels summer schools in several Latin America countries during the next two years.
