Danish position regarding the Seventh RTD Framework Programme of the EU

Funded under: FP7


Research and development play a key role in the implementation of the Lisbon Strategy aimed at Europe becoming the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010.
In 2000 the Commission launched the vision of a European Research Area, which has become a frame for higher degree of coordination between national activities and joint efforts to improve the exploitation of joint European resources for research.
For more than 10 years, the Framework Programmes have encouraged closer European cooperation on research projects of common interest. The project cooperation has strengthened a European tradition for cooperation in the form of research consortia involving participants from several European countries.
Within the sixth Framework Programme we have initiated a process that promotes cooperation on solving major European research challenges and steps up the development of structures that will give European cooperation greater impact in the future
The continued process should be based on the intentions of revised Lisbon Strategy and further development of the European Research Area in the form of a genuine internal market for generation and exploitation of knowledge.
