EU 7th Framework Programme – Cooperation

Why to deal with this? The overall aims of the European Union's €53 billion Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) 2007-13, is "to strengthen industrial competitiveness and meet the research needs of other community policies, thereby contributing to the creation of a knowledge-based society, building on a European Research Area and complementing activities at national and regional level." (Decision No 1982/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006)

In general, the Framework Programmes provides funding for projects which have a minimum of three partners from different Member States / Associated Candidate Countries. These are usually top-down, strategically driven programmes, with publications of opportunities and have submission deadlines. Participants usually have to follow set project types, so it is vital to read several key documents when making a submission. The essential starting point is the relevant Work Programme. Projects typically last between 24 and 48 months.
