Dear friends,

I assume many of you have followed the development of the work
programme for FP6, which have been quite dramatic at times for our
field. The end result is not particularly good, and the whole area of
Global Change has been cut by comparuison with FP5. I talked with
Anver Ghazi last week, and what I know stems from this and from the
Nov. 18 version of the work programme.
The will be no opening for climate dynamics in the first call (Dec. 17).
The second call due in June /July with a deadline in October 2003
will include some paleoclimate openings:
- STREPS for novel paleoreconstructions methods (i.e. a few of the
normal projects of previous FPs) - but remember: 75% of funding goes
to New Instruments: Integrated Projects and NoEs).
- Hot spots in the climate system, including the thermohaline
circulation and the Arctic.

Brussels will not issue anything now about the thrird call, but
according to Ghazi they plan to invite for either an NoE or an IP in
climate dynamics with emphasis on past climate change at that point.
Call will be in 2004. But things can change with this call.
Thus we have quite some time to discuss if we shall go forward with
DOCC or go for IP. The overall size of the IPs have been
substantially reduced, so if we try an IP or an NoE either will need
to be more focussed in terms of science and in terms of partnership
than our Expression of interest.
