Expressions of interest

In March 2002, the European Commission launched an invitation to submit Expressions of interest (EoI) for research actions under the Sixth Framework programme's (FP6) to participate in research actions with an Integrated Project or a Network of Excellence for topics throughout the seven thematic priorities of the Specific Programme Proposal - Integrating and Strengthening the ERA - and thematic priorities 2.2 and 2.3 of the Specific Programme Proposal - Nuclear Energy.

CORDIS, the European Commission's Research and Development Information Service, collected and published all the EoI (unless the submitters have requested otherwise). The EoI are now available as PDF documents, grouped by the most relevant Thematic Priority. Each record provides contact details, an abstract on the project and details of which instrument is applicable.

Results and analysis of Expressions of Interest received by the European Commission to help prepare the first FP6 calls in 2002 are available below
