The Sixth RTD Framework Programme (FP6) is the main financial instrument to contribute to the creation of a genuine European Research area by structuring and strengthening it. FP6 is intended to foster scientific excellence, competitiveness and innovation through the promotion of better co-operation between universities, research centres and industry, both in the EU and in non-EU countries (especially candidate countries). The ultimate goal of the European Research Area is the integration of the EU's research at local, regional, national and international level

Abstract

The 6th Framework Programme was adopted jointly by the European Parliament and the Council in June 2002 with a budget of 17.5 billion euro.
