Provisions for implementing specific targeted research projects: Background document. Edition: 12 May 2003

Funded under: FP6


This document is a practical guide to implementing specific targeted research projects in the Sixth Framework Programme. Specific Targeted Research Projects will aim at improving European competitiveness and meeting the needs of society or Community policies. They should be sharply focused and will take either of the following two forms, or a combination of the two:

a) a research and technological development project designed to gain new knowledge either to improve or develop new products, processes or services or to meet other needs of society and Community policies;
b) a demonstration project designed to prove the viability of new technologies offering potential economic advantage but which cannot be commercialised directly.

This document expresses solely the views of the inter-service FP6 Instruments Task Force of the European Commission Services. It is distributed by Unit B.2 of the Research DG of the European Commission.
