Austrian Position Paper for the Negotiations on the 7th EU Research Framework Programme

Funded under: FP7


Work on preparing an Austrian position on the 7th Framework Programme was begun on 9 March 2004, with an invitation to a brainstorming in writing on the 7th Framework Programme. This invitation was sent to a wide section of institutions from research, science, business, and administration.
After the Communication from the Commission "Science and technology, the key to Europe's future - Guidelines for future European Union policy to support research" had been published on 16 June 2004, the second step was taken in Austria: A working symposium was held on 28 June 2004, with the European Commission participating. In addition, platforms on several topics were set up in order to discuss specific issues. The opinions and the results of the symposium and of the platforms were eventually integrated into the preparation of the position paper on hand.
As soon as the European Commission submits its official proposal on the 7th Framework Programme, a further symposium is envisaged in Austria, with the widest possible participation of all interested parties, in order to discuss the substance of the measures planned.
