Abstract

Full title:
Regulation (EC) No 2321/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2002 concerning the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities in, and for the dissemination of research results for, the implementation of the European Community Sixth Framework Programme (2002-2006)

The Rules for Participation supplement the Framework Programme by setting out in more detail the rules that apply to those organisations participating in the Sixth Framework programme. They define the general principles and specific requirements affecting participation in indirect actions. They also set out rules for the dissemination and use of research results, covering issues such as the ownership of knowledge, protection of knowledge and the dissemination and use of knowledge.

Some of the new features in these rules of participation which differ from those of the previous Framework Programme include:
- EU Member States and candidate countries participating on the same footing;
- European scientific cooperation organisations will be able to participate on the same basis as Member States;
- financial contributions will be made in the form of grants for integration or grants to the budget, depending on whether they are directed to networks of excellence or integrated projects;
- consortia will be able to change partners, subject to observation of the rules.

This regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Communities, L 355, 30.12.2002, p.23.

A similar Regulation covers the rules for participation in the http://icadc.cordis.lu/fep-cgi/srchidadb?ACTION=D&SESSION=&RCN=1929&CALLER=DOCS_LIB (Euratom sixth framework programme).
