Support to the participation of SMEs in the Sixth Framework Programme: Working document. Second edition

Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

The Sixth Framework Programme for Research (FP6) attaches great importance to the participation of SMEs. At least 15% of the budget (approximately 1,700 million euros) relating to the Priority Thematic Areas of the FP6 is to be dedicated to SMEs.

This document provides information on measures being considered to facilitate the participation of SMEs in the Priority Thematic Areas via the new instruments (Integrated Projects and Networks of Excellence) or via already working instruments such as Co-operative Research Projects and Collective Research Projects, Specific Targeted Research Projects and Specific Support Actions. It also provides indicative information on calls for proposals.

This document, prepared by Unit B.3 of the Research DG of the European Commission, is being widely circulated in order to generate an open discussion.
