Support for the Integration of "Newly Associated States" (NAS) in the European Research Area - Quality Of Life And Management Of Living Resources: Catalogue of contracts under the Fifth Framework Programme

Funded under: FP5-LIFE QUALITY, OTH-ERA

Abstract

The Commission has continuously supported the integration of the Candidate Countries in the European Research Area (ERA) and the Fifth Framework Programme (FP5) opened the possibility for these countries to participate in the programme under the same conditions as the Member States. The level of scientific expertise and know-how in the Candidate Countries is high and their contribution to creating the European Research Area is expected to be substantial. However, despite these positive aspects, the participation of Candidate Countries in FP5 did not come up to expectations. Therefore, the Commission launched an initiative to provide support for centres of excellence in these countries. Following a dedicated call, twenty-nine centres of excellence in the Candidate Countries have received financial support under the "Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources" programme. They are presented in this brochure. This activity is complementary to the support provided to Candidate Countries as partners in projects in the Programme.
