6th Framework Programme - Anticipating scientific and technological needs: NEST - New and Emerging Science and Technology. Reference document on ADVENTURE projects

Funded under: FP6-NEST

Abstract

The New and Emerging Science and Technology (NEST) activity falls within the FP6 specific programme "Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area". ADVENTURE projects are intended to be one means of implementing this activity. They respond to the requirement in the specific programme that the NEST activity will conduct: "research in emerging areas of knowledge and on future technologies, outside or cutting across the Thematic Priority areas, in particular in trans-disciplinary fields, which is highly innovative and involves correspondingly high (technical) risk. It will be open to any new idea that has significant potential for major industrial and / or societal impact, or for the development of Europe�s research capabilities in the longer term."

This reference document addresses the various elements of implementation of ADVENTURE projects, indicating the approach that NEST proposes to take.
