Abstract

Full title: Opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee on the Proposal for a Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities and for the dissemination of research results for the implementation of the European Community framework programme 2002-2006 (COM(2001) 500 final, amended by COM (2001) 822 final)

In its Opinion, the ESC welcomes the Commission's proposals, particularly the increased simplification and greater transparency, but urges the Commission to ensure that SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) are not disadvantaged in any way. The ESC wants the process of dossier submission to be simplified, suggests an insurance scheme to cover the liability of project participants, and recommends that the choice of FP6 instruments should be left to project operators.
