Towards the 5th Framework Programme scientific and technological objectives

Funded under: FP5


This second Working paper on the 5th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Developments is intended to pave the way for a new stage in the preparation of the Framework Programme. Its purpose is to give a more detailed idea of the possible content of the 5th Framework Programme and the scientific and technological objectives of the proposed activities within the various programmes. These objectives have been formulated on the basis of an analysis of the socio-economic and technological situation in Europe, and the conclusions of the evaluation of the activities conducted under earlier Framework Programmes.

This Working Paper also explains the criteria used to select the objectives and provides further clarifications about the implementation, legal, and management aspects. These aspects and the financial aspects will be explained in full in the formal proposal concerning the 5th Framework Programme that the Commission plans to submit at the end of March 1997, and which will contain the Commission's definitive proposals in the light of the reactions to this Working Paper. .
