FP7

A New Approach to International S&T Cooperation in the EU’s 7th Framework Programme (2007-2013)

Funded under: FP7

Abstract

The launch of the 7th EU RTD Framework Programme (FP7), 2007-2013, places new emphasis on international research cooperation which is increasingly seen as being at the centre of Community policies. This publication outlines how the new approach to international cooperation is intended to work in FP7, with particular focus to the first two years of the programme’s implementation.
To maximise impact, the international activities across all programmes will be complementary and synergistic:
The Cooperation Programme enables research cooperation to take place between different global research partners in collaboration with European researchers.
The Capacities Programme will support a range of activities to strengthen research capacity in the European scientific community and other regions of the world.
The People Programme meets the need to foster both incoming and outgoing international mobility of researchers.
The Ideas Programme supports excellence in frontier research and enables individual top international researchers to participate in Europe-led teams.
