The FP7 Success Story Competition will highlight the three best success stories from the FP7 Capacities funding programme in e-Infrastructures. The organisers of the 10th e-Infrastructure Concertation Meeting invite project leaders of current and former projects, funded through FP7 (2006 – 2013) to submit abstracts highlighting their project’s biggest success story. The success stories should clearly show how they demonstrate achievement of one or more of the strategic aims listed below. One success story will be selected as the winner in each category, by a jury including representatives from e-ScienceTalk, International Science Grid This Week and the European Commission. The winners of each category will be invited to give a 20 minute keynote talk on their winning success story at the 10th e-Infrastructure Concertation meeting, and will also receive an e-ScienceTalk goodie bag as a prize.

These project success stories show how the project has raised the level of excellence in Europe's science base. The success story should show how the project supported the best ideas, developed talent within Europe, or provided researchers with access to priority research infrastructure, making Europe an attractive location for the world's best researchers.
Project success stories in this category will show how the project made Europe a more attractive location to invest in research and innovation, by promoting activities where businesses set the agenda. It will have helped innovative SMEs to grow into world-leading companies.
Project success stories will have targeted the policy priorities of the Europe 2020 strategy and addressed major concerns shared by citizens in Europe and elsewhere. Their challenge-based approach will have brought together resources and knowledge across different fields, technologies and disciplines, including social sciences and the humanities.
