COM(97) 47 Commission Working Paper. Towards the Fifth Framework Programme: Scientific and technological objectives

Funded under: FP5


This second Working Paper (Com(97) 47)on the 5th Framework Programme for research and technological development is intended to pave the way for a new stage in the preparation of the Framework Programme. The Communication "Inventing Tomorrow" (Com(96) 332) dated 10 July 1996 set out the broad guidelines proposed for the 5th Framework Programme. In this document, the Commission underlined its readiness to mark, with this new Programme, a distinct break with earlier Framework Programmes, by focusing efforts to a greater extent, by improving the consistency of the overall approach and by paying greater attention to the exploitation of results and the management aspects. The purpose of this second Working Paper is to give a more detailed idea of the possible content of the 5th Framework Programme and the scientific and technological objectives of the proposed activities within the various programmes.
