Workprogramme 2001: Quality of life and management of living resources. Fifth Framework Programme, 1998-2002 (revised version Spring 2001)

Funded under: FP5-LIFE QUALITY


The Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources programme is built around six specific Key Actions targeted at enhancing the quality of life of European citizens and improving the competitiveness of European industry. The Key Actions are mission oriented and have a number of clear objectives and measurable deliverables. They focus on the immediate socio-economic and market needs of improving the quality and safety of food, controlling disease, harnessing the power of the biological cell, the sustainable development of agriculture and fisheries, and a healthy and independent old age. A unique characteristic of the Key Actions is an ability to address the common needs of cross-linked Community policy objectives such as those in agriculture and fisheries, industry, environment, and health. Proposals to Key Actions are expected to actively contribute to these objectives. This implies consideration of intellectual property protection requirements where appropriate and of measures to exploit results in a self-sustained and economically viable manner.
