Info Days
Info days/ information days are open events organised by the European Commission to explain the characteristics of specific call for proposals, and often as well, a chance for potential applicants/ participants to meet and discuss proposal ideas and collaborations.

European Technology Platforms (ETPs)
European Technology Platforms focus on strategic issues where achieving Europe’s future growth, competitiveness and sustainability depends upon major technological advances. They bring together stakeholders, led by industry, to define medium to long-term research and technological development objectives and lay down markers for achieving them. The achievement of these objectives will significantly improve the daily lives of the European citizen in many areas. Technology platforms play a key role in better aligning EU research priorities to industry’s needs. They cover the whole economic value chain, ensuring that knowledge generated through research is transformed into technologies and processes, and ultimately into marketable products and services.
Coordination actions
Coordination actions are one of the instruments to implement FP6 and FP7. They are intended to promote and support the networking and coordination of research and innovation activities. They will cover the definition, organisation and management of joint or common initiatives as well as activities such as the organisation of conferences, meetings, the performance of studies, exchange of personnel, the exchange and dissemination of good practices, setting up common information systems and expert groups.
