Energy Research in the 7th framework programme

Funded under: FP7-ENERGY


The 7th Framework Programme Framework programmes have been the main instruments for funding by the EU of research and demonstration activities since 1984. The 7th Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities is an instrument for the realisation of a political vision, as expressed in the Lisbon Strategy, of making the EU economy the most dynamic, competitive, knowledgebased economy in the world by 2010. It is conceived as a continuation of the previous 6th framework programme but with an even more ambitious and innovative character. The programme will run from 1 January 2007 until 31 December 2013. FP7 is comprised of four distinct specific programmes, namely, Cooperation, Ideas, People and Capacities (plus a fifth specific programme on nuclear research which is not covered in this brochure). FP7 in comparison with the previous framework programme has a new structure, a significantly increased budget, new rules of participation, a longer duration (seven years instead of four), more flexible funding schemes, and simpler procedures for implementation that include a certain degree of externalization of administrative tasks.
