In Preparation of the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Innovation - Swedish Preliminary Views

Funded under: FP7


The qualitative and quantitative strengthening of European research and innovation is fundamentally important to the ambition to make Europe the world's most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy by 2010.
The European Commission has by its Communication "Science and Technology, the Key to Europe's future - Guidelines for Future European Union Policy to Support Research" set a number of strategic objectives on the agenda for debate and for action.
The Communication covers all the most relevant aspects for the development of European policies in this area and it makes a strong case for the further strengthening of the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, the single most important tool for the creation of the European Research Area.
In this contribution to the European political debate, we will limit ourselves to those aspects with relevance to the preparation of the Seventh Framework Programme, which we consider most important at this stage of the process.
