Sean McCarthy, the Managing Director of Hyperion Ltd, a company that specializes in the development of training courses for research managers, has published a research managers handbook entitled "How to Write a Competitive Proposal for Framework 6".
This handbook presents practical advice on submitting proposals to the Sixth EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6). FP6 is the main financial and legal instrument of the European Commission to implement the European Research Area.
On the one hand, the publication examines the structure of FP6, the evaluation process by the European Commission and the research priorities of FP6. On the other hand, it provides practical information on how to streamline the process of writing proposals, including, how to address non-scientific issues such as project management, technological, economic, social and environmental relevance and its impact on European Union policies.
The book is a useful tool for researchers planning to submit a proposal for FP6. It gives a practical overview of FP6 and helps researchers to optimise their proposals to ensure the best chance of success.
