These are the main tasks to be tackle and the teams preliminary involved (designated by their acronyms):
TIMES and extent of the eventual SUPPORT
The project (as depicted within the pages of this site, and as it must be arranged and agreed by the consortium as a whole) would start, in case of being elected, at the beginning of the next academic year (e.g. Oct.2012), and would finish 3 years after.
You can have an orientation concerning how much work it might represent by seeing in the work plan described in this site. CE funds are enough to cover wages for contracted personnel working on the development, whereas proper personnel of the institutions belonging to the consortium may do supervision and management of the research and development itself. This working effort of institution's staff suffices for demonstrating the necessary financial effort of the institution (25% of total budget). Networking activities, travel expenses, equipment and indirect costs are covered as well. The specific budget has to be worked out after the pre-proposal, in which specific tasks will be assigned.
It is particularly important that all of us try to provide some real added value to the global system. It is that what make a project eligible. Depending on that, the expenses might also differ.
