2.3.6 General Accompanying Actions

Find the most recent information on EU Funding activities in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by visiting our ICT in FP7 website , which covers ICT in the 7 th Framework Programme (FP7) 2007 - 2013.


The general accompanying actions run in parallel with the Strategic Objectives, and are employed to prepare (before), support (during) and facilitate the rapid adoption and transfer (after) of technologies and research results. They include activities such as support to international cooperation, socio-economic studies including statistical indicators, dissemination and awareness, standardisation and foresights.

The general accompanying actions will be implemented exclusively with Specific Support Actions and Coordination Actions that cut across the Strategic Objectives of the Work Programme and will be open for each call with a fixed deadline.
