Short description: Executive Summary of SNOWMAN funded research project within the first call. 
Long description: On the basis of SNOWMAN’s Vision Paper (see SNOWMAN’s BACKBONE brochure), an important step was taken in 2005: the only way of truely experiencing transnational financing of research is by having a coordinated call. A major objective of SNOWMAN is the transnational delivery of a work programme and knowledge transfer of the common results amongst the participating countries and more widely. The dissemination of project results should generate multiplier effects within Europe. Project proposals should thus contain well thought out and detailed dissemination plans. Public access to deliverables should be given a high priority by proposers and dissemination activity should be described in project final reports. Executive Summaries suitable for web publication as a minimum will be disseminated via the EUGRIS and SNOWMAN websites. The first, so called ‘pilot’ call supported the development of sustainable management of land contamination. Within this broad topic, applicants had to focus on one of two spatial scales. Working at the traditional contaminated land site scale, the call objective was to encourage sustainable approaches to remediation. Working at a broader scale, the call objective was to improve knowledge on the behaviour of contaminants at the catchment and subcatchment scale, dealing with contaminants at lower concentrations over wider areas. Secondary objectives of the call were important for the future. This pilot call provided first experience of international cooperation amongst national research funders and it tested the mechanisms of collaboration between funding programmes. In addition, it laid the foundations for a transnational research funding programme, and provided an opportunity to establish transnational research consortia for the longer term.
