Dear Eystein
I just had Anvar Ghazi at the phone. He is currently in the round of
negociation to decide what to do. Decision in 2 weeks. The info I got
goes on the same line that you.
1/ The total funding for environment and climate decreases from 1
million Euros to 700 000. Even if paleo is not in the first call, the
following one should follow in march or April. Paleo is well
considered, and will exist in one or the other.
2/ the paleo community is too large to allow just one network or
I.P., and there are not enough funds to support several in our field.
Proposals will have to be well planned, to justify that the funding
goes to them and no others. But we can always try.
3/ Our community should therefore be better adapted to answer to
smaller 5th framework like projects. They will go on, but competition
will be harder (less money, and large part of it going to NoE and IP).
I think we should go on, but do a very nice job with all the best
