• It is very unlikely to find a project in the list, without one of those in the consortium
General Remarks
• Strategic aiming to fewer and bigger projects
• To reduce administrative burden?
• EC is making ICT Calls a closed circuit for few huge
institutes/companies and does not allow "all flowers to blossom“
• Specially ones from remote or not so polished gardens!

(Just like Turkey does)
