COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMISSION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
pursuant to the second subparagraph of Article 251 (2) of the EC Treaty
concerning the common position of the Council on the adoption of a Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the 6th Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities, contributing to the creation of the European Research Area (2002-2006) and to innovation - SEC(2002) 105 final

In accordance with Article 251 of the EC Treaty, the present communication sets out the Commission�s position on the Council�s Common Position of 28 January 2002 concerning the 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. Political agreement on the Euratom Framework Programme was also reached on 10 December in parallel with the agreement on the Common Position on the EC Framework Programme.

Broadly, the Common Position preserves the essential features of the Framework Programme proposed by the Commission and is, in overall terms, highly consistent with the opinion of the European Parliament. The Council has incorporated a large majority of the amendments adopted in the opinion of the European Parliament, on first reading (14 November 2001) and accepted by the Commission in its modified proposal . The Commission therefore regards the Common Position as a good basis on which to carry forward negotiations on the framework programme and rapidly proceed to a co-decision.
