Advisory Groups under FP6

The seventeen FP5 External Advisory Groups finished their work in 2002, and instead twelve new Advisory Groups (AG) were created to cover the research activities and areas of FP6.

The new AGs under FP6 will give the Commission advice on the overall strategy to be followed in the development in the various research activities, as well as on the creation of the European Research Area (ERA). The AGs are run by the relevant Commission services, which in addition provide the scientific secretariat and take care of all practical arrangements.

Members participate in the groups in their individual capacity and each group ensures a balanced participation with respect to expertise, geographical origin (including candidate and associated countries), sector of origin and gender. The list of members of each AG is attached.
