In the space of just over a year, the European Research Area (ERA) has become the reference framework for research policy issues in Europe. Proposed by the Commission in January 2000, this project was endorsed by the Lisbon European Council in March 2000 as a central component of the process of developing a knowledge-based economy and society in the EU to promote innovation, competitiveness and employment, sustainable economic growth and social cohesion.
The present publication contains the proposals for the multi-annual Framework Programmes 2002-2006 of the European community and of the European Atomic Energy Community for research, technological development and demonstration and training activities aimed at contributing to the creation of the European Research Area. The publication furthermore contains an explanatory memorandum on the European Research Area.
