1st Call for Proposals
3 City of Tomorrow and Cultural HeritageSummary of 1st call 1999
Available Budget 17 000 000 EURO
Very good response
137 proposals (requesting 180 000 000 EURO)
21 GO proposals (requesting 21 000 000 EURO of which 18 destined for SMEs) good coverage of MS and candidate countries
4 City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage Results of First Call Selected Projects
All sub-themes covered. Substantial socio-economic relevance and content. Potential policy contribution.
Proposals in 4.2.2 (Cultural Heritage) 4.3.1 (Built Environment) and 4.4.1 (Sustainable Urban Transport) very good
Proposals in 4.1.1 (Governance and Decision Making) of value but need clustering to bring out holistic approach to urban governance
5 City of Tomorrow and Cultural HeritageNumber of partners in First Call Selected Projects 6 Benefits of networkingand clustering
widening scope of individual projects
better consistency co-ordination between projects researchers and stakeholders
increased awareness of technology trends
enlarging RTD towards integrated solutions and improved exploitation of strategic RTD
strengthening RTD infrastructure through foresight analysis access to research facilities
contributing to focus and concentration
7 City of Tomorrow and Cultural HeritageFirst Call Results Clustering
4.1.1. Clustering could help in the formation of a coherent research community relating to urban governance and decision making.
4.2.2 Only networks and concerted actions were open in the first call additional clustering was not seen as appropriate.
4.3.1 There would be merits in linking the two networks which were seen as complementary.
4.4.1 There would be merits in clustering proposals around sustainable transport through integration with land use planning.
At this stage clustering should be seen as exploratory and should only proceed when mutual interest is established. Coordination rather than clustering is the most appropriate means of linking with other Key Actions.
8 City of Tomorrow and Cultural HeritageNo Go ANALYSIS 9 Messages for potential proposers based on experience of the first evaluation
Present the objectives and the potential results in the context of the work programme. Explain why the proposed approach is the best way of meeting the objectives. Describe the methodology showing how the results would be obtained. Justify claims for socio-economic impacts.
All levels (researchers end users public authorities etc.) of stakeholders should be involved in the research.
The state of the art must be described (a description is of much more value than a list of references!).
The approach to be followed must be sufficient to convince the evaluators of its credibility
Ask somebody not involved to critically evaluate the draft proposal.
