Funded under: FP5

Abstract

This document is a Commission working document on the specific programmes under the Fifth RTD Framework Programme adopted, on 5 November 1997. The document contains the most detailed information so far on the proposed thematic programmes' scientific and technological content, as well as on the three horizontal programmes. It also outlines in greater detail the Commission's proposals in respect of the management methods to be used for the Programme.

The working paper has been published in order to provide more detail on the scientific and technological content of the specific programmes in order to facilitate the conclusion of the debate on the Fifth Framework Programme proposal. It will also serve to speed up the process of adopting the specific programmes once the Framework Programme is adopted. For each of the three thematic programmes, it gives detailed research objectives: for the key actions, generic research activities, and support for research infrastructures.

In respect of the management and implementation of the Programme, the Commission aims to develop more efficient and flexible methods and procedures, and for its part is committed to greater transparency and speed of execution.
