Abstract

The rules for participation adopted by the Council are one of the legal instruments implementing the Community framework programme for research. The new rules have been drawn up with the twofold aim of:
- Adapting the rules on participating in research programmes in line with the philosophy and characteristics of the new framework programme, especially the principles of the proposed new procedures for intervention and financial support;
- Simplifying and streamlining existing provisions to make them clearer and easier to understand.

The framework established complies with the above principles. Moreover, unlike the existing rules, the new rules on participation are not intended to be supported by an implementing regulation.
To assist in the creation of the European Research Area, the 2002-2006 framework
programme applies the following principles, especially through the networks of excellence and integrated projects:
- The principle of opening projects to new participants;
- Flexibility in operational conditions, including procedures for launching new activities;
- Great autonomy in project implementation, with participants carrying out their tasks in largely self-determined conditions and internal arrangements best suited to completing projects successfully.

Several new features have been introduced into the rules for participation and financing to apply the above principles and to bring the rules into line with the characteristics and objectives of the new framework programme.programme.
