The European Commission has been scratching its head about what to call the new EU research and innovation funding program. They’re asking for help. The new funding program will replace the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) after 2013.
Provided you’re not an employee of one of the European institutions or a direct family member, you are invited to enter the ongoing competition for the new name. Your proposal “should be easily associated with research and innovation, while also being original, memorable, either usable in a wide range of languages or easily translatable, and easy to pronounce and spell,” the European Commission Web site reads.
The three best suggestions will be selected by an international jury and further voted on by the public. The winner, to be announced on 10 June, will get an all-expense-paid trip to Brussels for the European Innovation Convention later this year.
Entries will be accepted until midnight Central European Summer Time on 10 May to send your proposal.
