Position paper of the German Federal Government on the Fifth Community Framework Programme on Research, 1998-2002

Funded under: FP5


The German Federal government has put forward its initial views on the Community's Fifth RTD Framework Programme, scheduled to commence in 1999, in a paper submitted to the Commission as part of the ongoing consultation process. The German government sees the Fifth Framework Programme as offering an opportunity for the reorientation of European research policy, preserving the strong points of the previous four Framework Programmes whilst avoiding existing weaknesses. In particular, it notes the need, due to financial restrictions, to focus resources increasingly on areas of priority importance.
