Background information

55 Outline Proposals received. The Review Panel recommended inviting the proponents of 23 Outline Proposals for the next stage. 21 Full Proposals were received on 14 March 2005. The Review Panel met on 7 - 8 July 2005 and recommended 16 Proposals for funding subject to funding confirmations of participating agencies. The Management Committee met on 19 July 2005. Funding decisions and final commitments from funding agencies have been delayed. Applicants of 12 Collaborative Research Projects (CRP) were informed of the status of their CRP on 13 April 2006. The status of  three other CRPs was announced  during the period May-July 2006, but the decision regarding one CRP is still pending.
