Executive summary (max.250 words):

FP0901 has now been running for 14 months altogether and the start up face has been quite successful. The number of COST countries participating is currently 26, with one country pending a DC decision. We also have three active non-COST members (two reciprocal agreements) and one more pending a DC decision. The number of registered participants is about 120, of which about 80 have been actively participating. The number of female participants is very good, being about 50% and the number of ESRs is also growing. Notable is that the Chair is an ESR. The number of publications by the partners involved in FP0901 in the field of the Action was 205. The industry has also shown appreciable interest in the Action and the next task is to involve them also on a practical plane, not only as watchers. From scientific and networking aspects, the main success stories have definitely been the successful STSM visits. The start-up of the Round Robin type activities have also been important and will allow the Action to develop and get closer to reaching the goals. It is also nice to see that especially ESR’s and also young female researchers (e.g. 3 out of 7 STSMs) seem to have found activities within the Action. The Chair, Steering Group, and some MC members have actively been promoting the Action at conferences and meetings, as well as in direct contacts with the industry. Plans have also been made for interaction with other Actions and EU initiatives.
