Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

Revised 1999 edition.

This work programme establishes the work schedule of the specific programme for research and technological development activities, including demonstration, in the field of "Improving the human research potential and the socio economic knowledge base, 1998-2002" and sets out in detail the various activities to be pursued during its lifetime. On the basis of this Work Programme periodic calls for proposals are launched inviting interested organisations to present project proposals.

The general objectives of this programme, to be realised in concert with related activities elsewhere in the Framework Programme, are centred on two main areas of activity, to improve the human research potential and to strengthen the socio-economic knowledge base. The Programme consists of five distinct actions:

- Supporting training and mobility of researchers, which is implemented through two lines: Research Training Networks and Marie Curie fellowships;

- Enhancing access to research infrastructures, which is implemented through Transnational Access to Major Research Infrastructures, Infrastructure Cooperation Networks and Research Infrastructure and Research Infrastructure RTD projects;

- Promoting Scientific and Technological Excellence, which is implemented through High-level Scientific Conferences, Distinctions for High-Level Research Work and Raising Public Awareness activities;

- Key action on "Improving the socio economic knowledge base";

- Support for the development of scientific and technology policies in Europe, which is implemented through the Strategic Analysis of Specific Political Issues and the establishment of a Common Basis of Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators.

In addition to the implementation of these five actions, this horizontal programme has an important coordination role within the Fifth Framework Programme, related to Marie Curie Fellowships, Research Infrastructure and Socio-economic Research.
