Community-funded projects in the field of rare diseases research 1998-2002, Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Programme, Project Synopses

Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

Projects addressing research on rare diseases in the Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Programme
During Framework Programme 5 (1998-2002) (FP5) Life Sciences research was funded under the Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Programme (QoL Programme). The programme was divided into six Key actions, a section called Generic Activities and support for Research Infrastructures. Rare diseases were specifically mentioned in subsection 7 of the Generic Activities part of the programme and most projects supported in FP5 were funded from this area. Four projects were funded in subsection 8 of the Generic Activities, with a view to reinforce the knowledge base for identifying the biological functions of genes and the genetic basis of diseases. In addition projects with a biotechnology aspect were funded by Key Action 3, The ¿Cell Factory¿. Finally, 3 projects supported in the Research Infrastructures part of the programme addressed the setting up of registers and biobanks.
This catalogue lists the abstracts of all research and networking projects addressing rare diseases supported in the QoL programme. In total 47 such projects have been funded under FP5, with a total EU contribution for the research and networking projects of 64 million EUR.
In this catalogue projects are sorted, firstly by area of the programme from which they have been funded, and then in order of contract number. The listing starts with the projects funded in Generic Activities, then lists projects from the Research Infrastructures part and concludes with the projects funded in Key Action 3 of the QoL programme.
