Work programmes are official documents describing the implementation of EU
research programmes, and are periodically revised as the programme proceeds. Current work programmes support the calls for project proposals launched in 2005. Due to the way FP6 is structured, a single work programme covers all seven thematic priorities and also a variety of other research and support activities which share the strategic goal of integrating and strengthening European Research.
However this single work programme has been split
up and packaged as separate documents for each thematic priority.
The documents available from the first link include a "General Introduction"
which describes cross-cutting issues relevant to all priorities,
and annexes, which include an explanation of "The common evaluation
criteria for evaluating proposals" (in general annex B). The specific
section describes the research objectives of the LifeSciHealth priority
and the scientific "topics" open to project proposals in the calls
closing 9 November 2005 (Calls FP6-2005-LIFESCIHEALTH-6 and FP6-2005-LIFESCIHEALTH-7).
