The Fifth Framework Programme (FP5) has two distinct parts: the Fifth European Community Framework Programme covering Research, Technological Development and Demonstration activities; and the Fifth Euratom Framework Programme covering research and training activities in the nuclear sector.

FP5 has a multi-theme structure, consisting of seven Specific Programmes , of which four are Thematic Programmes:

and three are Horizontal Programmes, which underpin and complement the Thematic Programmes by responding to common needs across all research areas:

FP5 was conceived to help solve problems and respond to major socio-economic challenges the EU is facing. It focuses on a number of objectives and areas combining technological, industrial, economic, social and cultural aspects. This approach is reinforced by the Key Action concept. Key actions deal with concrete problems through multi-disciplinary approaches involving all the interested parties.

Information on the Newly Associated States (NAS) is available on the FP5web Service. The " Enlargement " section provides access to tailored information for NAS participation in FP5 activities.

In light of the adoption of the Sixth Framework Programme, CORDIS has established the FP6 Web Service. This service provides access to partners, calls for proposals, news and events related the Sixth Framework Programme. Information specific to the European Research Area (ERA) is available from the ERA Web Service.
