Work Programme 2010, Capacities, Part 6: Support for the Coherent Development of Research Policies (European Commission C(2009)5905 of 29 July 2009)

Funded under: FP7-CAPACITIES


Enhancing the effectiveness and coherence of national and Community research policies and their articulation with other policies, improving the impact of public research and its links with industry, and strengthening public support and its leverage effect on investment by private actors.
In March 2000, the European Union set itself the ambitious goal to become, by 2010, "the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world", what has become known as the Lisbon strategy.
Leveraging investment in R&D became a key element of this strategy following the Barcelona European Council's objective to raise the EU's overall R&D investment to approach 3% of GDP by 2010.
The ways and means to achieve this objective were initially defined in 2002 in the Commission's communication 'More research for Europe ¿ Towards 3% of GDP', which was followed by the Action Plan 'Investing in research', adopted by the Commission in 2003.
