FP6

Work Programme: 2006, Science & Society

Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

In a knowledge-based society, both policy makers and citizens should be equipped to make informed choices from the ever-growing range of options thrown up by scientific and technological progress.
The aim of this part of the programme is to help develop the environment in which this can be achieved, by seeking both a better integration of science in society and society in science.
Based on the objectives and activities outlined in the Specific Programme, the work programme represents in large part the Commission's response to the Council's Resolution on Science and society and women in science, which called on both the Commission and the Member States to take a range of new initiatives in these domains. At the same time, the work programme will help implement the Commission¿s Action Plan on Science and Society.
This edition of the work programme sets out activities planned for 2006. It includes those calls entailing budget commitments in 2006 that had already announced in the previous edition (2005/6).
It introduces new calls which now account for the totality of the budget allocated to the Science and Society theme in FP6. This latest version provides for some minor modifications (public procurement actions) to the work programme adopted on November 2005.
