Conference on the Fifth Framework Programme "Tomorrow’s Technology" - Amsterdam, 28 October 1998
A presentation for businesses and research institutions in The Netherlands
Research and technological development are key concepts for businesses, research institutes and universities whose ambitions extend beyond their own frontiers. Innovation that opens up new horizons has priority when it comes to international competition, improving one's position on the market, expanding sales outlets, extending networks and taking advantage of advanced expertise or creating such expertise.
The Fifth Framework Programme: opportunities and possibilities
The European Union has promoted innovation by offering numerous international R&D subsidies by means of the Framework Programme. The Fifth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development is the collective name for these European subsidies for the next five years. The research opportunities that the Framework Programme offers, vary from extremely fundamental research projects to commercially-oriented demonstration projects. The Framework Programme is eminently relevant to research institutions, universities and businesses with a powerful need to innovate, irrespective of whether or not they have their own R&D capacity.
The wide range offered by the Fifth Framework Programme requires clear presentation. Since 1983, EG-Liaison has built up a reputation as the leading organisation providing information and independent advice on the European Framework Programmes for research and technology development. EG-Liaison also helps in the search for international R&D partners and provides courses on various aspects of international research projects. EG-Liaison provides information and advice free of charge.
