The overall socio-economic dimension of community research in the fifth European framework programme: A synthesis report on the integration of the socio-economic related research activities of the European Community (1998-2002)

Funded under: FP5-GROWTH

Abstract

In the Fifth Framework Programme for RTD, and in the specific programme on "Improving the human research potential and the socio-economic knowledge base", the Human Potential programme was assigned the task of coordinating and supporting activities to ensure the incorporation of socio-economic considerations into the research activities of the thematic programmes.

This synthesis report covers the whole period of FP5 and follows two annual reports, for http://icadc.cordis.lu/fep-cgi/srchidadb?ACTION=D&SESSION=&RCN=1406&CALLER=DOCS_LIB (1999) and for http://icadc.cordis.lu/fep-cgi/srchidadb?ACTION=D&SESSION=&RCN=1951&CALLER=DOCS_LIB (2000), already published. It provides an analysis and overview of the socio-economic aspects integrated in all relevant specific FP5 programmes before proposing some recommendations for future European research activities in this area. The specific programmes covered by the report are:
- Improving the Human Potential and Socio-Economic Knowledge Base (IHP)
- Quality of Life (QOL)
- Competitive and Sustainable Growth (GROWTH)
- Information Society Technologies (IST)
- Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development (EESD).
