Life sciences, genomics and biotechnology for health
is one of seven major thematic priorities of the European UnionÂ´s Sixth FrameWork Programme (FP6). The objective is to help Europe exploit, in this post-genomic era, the unprecedented opportunities for generating new knowledge and translating it into applications that enhance human health. To this end both fundamental and applied research will be supported, with an emphasis on integrated, multidisciplinary, and coordinated efforts that address the present fragmentation of European research and increase the competitiveness of the European biotechnology industry.
The indicative budget is
EUR 2514 million
for the period 2002-2006, including up to EUR 475 million for cancer-related research.
