1. Introduction
The promotion of potential partners from Latin America into appropriate consortia is
part of the WP4 activities to support the proactive participation of Latin America in
the ICT programme. The objective of Task 4.3 Potential partner profiling, in close
collaboration with Ideal-ist, is to promote partner profiles from the 4 target countries
(Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay) through the Ideal-ist database and other
European partners’ networks

Since the project started, Partners Search has been one of the services provided
through the PRO-IDEAL platform as building or join a consortium is one of the most
challenging steps for those who prepare an FP7-ICT proposal for the first time,
particularly from third countries like Latin America where reaching the right partners is
considered a success factor to participate in FP7-ICT projects

Therefore, this report intends to be a guideline for partner profiling following Ideal-ist
requirements to help potential partners to write and submit profiles from Latin
American countries, in particular from those countries in which the PRO-IDEAL
project actively is involved (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay). This tool can be
also useful for ICT NCPs and PRO-IDEAL local coordinators who require some
guidelines to promote LA interested candidates profiles among selected and
experienced teams in Europe

Why Ideal-ist?
Ideal-ist www.ideal-ist.net is the most widespread international ICT partner search
network, with more than 60.000 contacts, in line with the international cooperation
strategy of the European Commission and a unique quality labelled partner search tool
to connect newcomers and experienced researchers from Europe and abroad. Since the
beginning of the project, PRO-IDEAL is collaborating with Ideal-ist and its National
Representatives in Latin America (Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Mexico) to promote its
partner search service throughout Latin America, in the events held in the target
countries and through the PRO-IDEAL platform www.pro-ideal.eu

Actually both platforms are interconnected to enhance the synergy: Ideal-ist is
accessible from the PRO-IDEAL site www.pro-ideal.eu/partner_search and PRO-
IDEAL itself is accessible from the Ideal-ist site from its "project pages"

Thus, the dissemination and endorsement of the Ideal-ist network by the PRO-IDEAL
project will encourage Latin American ICT potential partners to fill in and submit the
partner profiling template at the Ideal-ist website. The promotion dimension of this
initiative will help researchers and other ICT stakeholders interested in obtaining
funding for their research from the FP7-ICT programme to expand their match
possibilities with counterparts from Europe and other regions

2. Partner profiling targets
Partner profiling through Ideal-ist targets people at all levels of expertise in FP7-ICT
Programme; from those who are thinking on the possibility of participating in the FP7-
ICT calls to those who have a proposal idea and need urgently to find counterparts as
partners and coordinators to build a consortium. The point is to gain visibility in the
specialized networks and media where the most important researchers and developers
actively participate in. Partners Profiles need to be updated regularly according to the
institution interests and call content and requirements

Ideal-ist network supports Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs), Academia, Non-profit
Organisations, larger Companies and public Administration, Newcomers, Research
Organisations and consultancies in:
1. Interpreting the ICT work programme of FP7
2. Submitting project ideas in line with the Challenges & Objectives of FP7
3. Finding the right partners for their project
4. Joining as partners to other proposals
5. Joining on-going projects via competitive calls launched by project coordinators
3. Ideal-ist partners search service
There are three ways of participation in the Ideal-ist network:
 Proactively launching a Partner Search, in those cases when a
partner/proposer already have a project idea and need to complete the
consortium with partners and/or a project co-ordinator. For that, the first step
is to create a member ID and fill up the profile at www.ideal-

 Proactively launching a take-up action for a competitive call, in those cases
where partners look for additional partners in a running IP or NoE project. For
that, the first step is to create a member ID and fill up the profile at

 Subscribing to the ideal-ist mailing lists to be informed of any opportunity
arising to join a forming consortium in different areas of interest. Potential
partners have to check their compliance with the partner profiles sought and
filling in an Expression of Interest to apply. This is useful if partners are
newcomers who need to identify forming consortia in order to take part in
international ICT calls www.ideal-ist.net/partner-search/newsletter_subscribe

Some important tips
According to the Ideal-ist network partner search procedure the main functionality
offered to all registered members to the Ideal-ist web portal is the possibility to
create, submit and publish Partner Search Forms, both for regular ICT Calls and own
Competitive Calls

The user needs to register first in the log in box selecting “New Proposer?” Once
registered, the user simply has to log in with his own login and password, click on
‘New Partner Search’ on the Control Panel and complete the following procedure for
issuing a Partner Search form in close contact with his own National Ideal-ist
Representative. The log in and password of a proposer will remain as such for ever:
for any future Partner Searches or Competitive Calls the proposer simply needs to
log in
