Hi all,

I think participating in FP7 projects would really be an opportunity to 
further develop and interconnect OKFN. We already applied together with 
an IP project proposal I prepared last year for the Digital Libraries 
objective in ICT call 3. We got to the shortlist and were invited for 
the hearing but unfortunately finally did not succeed.
This year there will be (besides the CIP) also some other possibilities 
to apply. E.g. I'm currently trying to shape a consortium with regard to 
participatory governance:

"PreMaGo - Web-based Prediction Markets for Participatory Governance"

I guess also OKFN could be an potential partner here and I will get back 
to Jonathan about that soon.

Generally, I have to note, that preparing an FP7 project proposal 
requires significant preparation - at least 2-3 months and experience. 
The latter I'm happy to share if OKFN decides to go for an own application.
