Dear All,

Today our current GREAT ESF call for proposals to support a range of networking activities has been issued.

In particular you will find calls to support the following:

a) Workshops - see

b) Longer Exchange visits - see (Note that for short exchange visits only, proposals can be made at any time.)

The links above provide full details for each funding opportunity together with the link to the proposal submission page.

The deadlines for receipt of proposals are *Tuesday 25th June 2013* (@ 18.00 GMT). All proposals will be evaluated by the GREAT ESF Steering Committee with replies by email to proposers made by end July 2013.

For this open call, proposals are welcome to support networking in any area within the science scope of the GREAT programme. Please check the list of previously supported calls on the wiki page Proposals covering similar topics to those recently supported are also welcome but will need to demonstrate a clear additional value.

General information concerning the GREAT programme is available at

Also - please remember that the GREAT Plenary will be held 10-12 July 2013 at the EWASS 2013 meeting in Turku, Finland. For details see This will be the last GREAT Plenary prior to the launch of Gaia and thus there will be a significant focus on what the Gaia data releases will be, and when they will be. Thus, aim to attend if possible.

Yours, Nicholas Walton

(on behalf of the GREAT ESF RNP Steering Committee)
