Specific programme for research, technological development and demonstration [...], 2006 Work Programme (SP1-10), Specific measures in support of international co-operation (INCO)

Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

International cooperation in research and technology development (RTD) is an important dimension of the 6th Framework Programme. It will be pursued through three complementary routes:
(a) An international cooperation dimension integrated in the activities of each of the thematic priority fields of the specific programme "Integrating and strengthening the European Research Area" as well as in the "Specific activities covering a wider field of research" (chap. 8 and 9). This will allow the European research community to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of third countries and institutions through the participation of researchers, teams and institutions from these countries in projects within the different thematic fields.
(b) Dedicated international cooperation activities (henceforth referred to as INCO) which are relevant to some groups of countries or regions and which are not addressed by the other thematic activities of the programme "Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area". These specific international cooperation activities will support in particular the Community¿s external relations and development aid policies, in particular the fight against poverty, the EU Water Initiative and the commitment towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDG's) and the goals included in the Plan of Implementation of the Wold Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD).
(c) A coherent set of actions to support international mobility of researchers in the framework of the specific programme "Structuring the European Research Area". With a view to further reinforcing the human capital for European research and to contribute to equitable and mutually beneficial research co-operation between Europe and third countries, these actions aim to attract researchers from third countries and to promote the training of European researchers abroad.
