Understanding the work programme

Reference documents and sites

The individual work programmes are the detailed implementation plans for the specific programmes of FP6. They specify the concrete scientific-technical, economic and societal objectives of each thematic priority. They give a broad background to the thematic activity, and the detailed technical content of the activity. They project a 'road map' of the planned calls for proposals. They also indicate for each call the instruments that will be available and the evaluation criteria that will be applied (in annex B). Understanding the objectives of the work programme is essential for preparing a good proposal.

Each thematic activity has its own work programme, so the best way to access them is via the activities page /fp6/activities.htm and click on the relevant activity from where you will see a page that contains a downloadable work programme.
