European funding and priorities for ICT research (2007-2013) - User guide

Funded under: FP7-ICT

Abstract

Although the ICT sector is itself worth 6-8% of the EU's GDP, their importance goes well beyond that - ICTs are also vital to:
- meeting the globalization challenge by boosting innovation, creativity and competitiveness throughout the economy;
- delivering cutting-edge science in all scientific and technological areas;
- making Europe's large public sector more efficient, and modernising sectors ranging from education to energy;
- tackling social challenges, improving quality of life and meeting the challenge of an ageing society.
Europe must therefore master these technologies to remain competitive and safeguard its quality of life, which is why ICT research is one of the key themes of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for Research and Technological Development, which will fund research across Europe from 2007-2013
