We consider locally Lipschitz and completely continuous maps
$A\colon C\to C$ defined on a closed convex subset $C\subset X$ of
a Banach space $X$. The main interest lies in the case when $C$
has empty interior. We establish Poincaré-Hopf type formulas
relating fixed point index information about $A$ with homology
Conley index information about the semiflow on $C$ induced by
$-{\rm id}+A$. If $A$ is a gradient we also obtain results on the
critical groups of isolated fixed points of $A$ in $C$.
