FP7 Rules for Participation

Funded under: FP7


The Commission's proposal for the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), adopted on 6 April 2005, was accompanied by a Commission Staff working document "Simplification in the 7th Framework Programme" setting out 10 main measures to be implemented, and highlighting the importance of simplification as a "critical success factor". The Commission's proposal for the Rules for Participation for the European Community Seventh Framework Programme (EC) adopted on 23.12.051, provides the vehicle for implementing many aspects of that simplification and to build upon principles established in FP6. Stakeholders, Member States and Associated states have been consulted on the Commission proposal in seminars and via a consultation website. Further, the Sounding Board of smaller actors has been consulted on the proposals in order to ensure that the changes will not create particular disadvantages for such participants.
When adopted, the FP7 (EC) Rules will be a Regulation of the European Council and Parliament based on Article 167 of the European Community Treaty that foresees the adoption of rules to implement the Community multi-annual framework programme for research. They define the rights and obligations of legal entities wishing to take part in the framework programme and establish the principles for the use and dissemination of their work resulting from that participation.
