Candidate Countries Service

CORDIS is offering key information, tools and features to help people and organisations from the Candidate States to participate in and benefit from the EU research schemes and to fully integrate into the European Research Area.

Most of the Candidate States have already negotiated specific agreements with the EU for participation in FP5 and assumed the status of Newly Associated States (NAS) to the Programme.

This section of the CORDIS FP5 service encourages the integration of Newly Associated States' organisations to ongoing research projects and programmes.
