Abstract

Full title: Modified proposal for a Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Sixth Multiannual Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities aimed at contributing towards the creation of the European Research Area (2002-2006), and Modified proposal for a Council Decision concerning the Sixth Multiannual Framework Programme of the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) for research and training activities aimed at contributing towards the creation of the European Research Area (2002-2006). - COM(2001) 709 final

In accordance with the EC and Euratom Treaties, the Commission adopted, on 21 February 2001, its proposals for Decisions concerning the Framework Programme (2002-2006) (Sixth Framework Programme) for Research and Technology Development, aimed at contributing towards the creation of the European Research Area.
The proposals have been examined by the Council and the European Parliament, as well as by the Economic and Social Committee. The Parliament delivered its opinion on first reading on November 2001. The Council is aiming to arrive at a Common Position imminently.
To expedite an agreement on the Framework Programme, and in the interest of transparency, the Commission is now bringing forward its position on the Parliament�s amendments, in the form of amended proposals. While maintaining the key principles of the Commission�s original proposals, these take up, in spirit and content if not necessarily always in precise wording, a large proportion of Parliament�s amendments, where the Commission believes they contribute to the goals of the Framework Programme and are likely to facilitate the subsequent negotiations.
