Whether you are a newcomer to EU-funded R&D; programmes, or an experienced project participant, this service can direct you to all of your FP6 information and participation needs. This portal provides a single entry point to the family of CORDIS FP6 web services and tools.

The CORDIS FP6 service is built around a suite of interactive and user-friendly support modules to provide you with a comprehensive set of information and tools to support participation in FP6.

General FP6 background information is provided by:

  • What is FP6? : detailing the range of research areas, activities and themes to be addressed during the lifetime of FP6 and outlining the instruments to be used to implement the programme
  • FP6 step by step : a structured walk-through of what participation entails
  • FP6 Glossary : jargon free explanations for all the FP6 terminology (available soon)

The tools to support FP6 participation are:

  • Find a call : search and find all the FP6 calls, view all the relevant documentation on-line and download the complete infopack for the preparation of your proposal. View potential partners seeking for collaboration and access to the EPSS
  • Get support : identify the National Contact Points in the 15 EU member states and the states associated to FP6 who will provide personalised, local support to prospective participants
