If you are interested to come to Amman, it would be a pleasure for us to invite you. We have some limited funds to support the travel and accommodation in Amman for MPC and European participants, if you want to make use of it let us know as soon as possible. Since this budget is limited, applicants have to submit a short abstract of their proposal idea with a clear reference to one of the open call topics. These abstracts will be evaluated by MED-Dialogue partners, based on criteria such as: ICT Expertise, Experience in FP projects, Maturity and Appropriateness of the Idea, Involvement in proposal consortia.

This selection is not made on a first-come-first-served basis, but on the ideas submitted by you!

You can sign up to attend at under 'Express your Interest!' Please make sure that when you register you put in:
o your CV (max 1 page)
