Work Programme 2007, PEOPLE (European Commission C(2006) 6844)

Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


The "Marie Curie Actions" have long been one of the most popular and appreciated features of the Community Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development. They have developed significantly in orientation over time, from a pure mobility fellowships programme to a programme dedicated to stimulating researchers' career development. The "Marie Curie Actions" have been particularly successful in responding to the needs of Europe's scientific community in terms of training, mobility and career development. This has been demonstrated by a demand in terms of highly ranked applications that in most actions extensively surpassed the available financial support.
The "Marie Curie Actions" under the Sixth Framework Programme were part of the Specific Programme dedicated to structuring the European Research Area. In the Seventh Framework Programme, the "Marie Curie Actions" have been regrouped and reinforced in the Specific Programme "People". Entirely dedicated to human resources in research, this Specific Programme has a significant overall budget of more than EUR 4,7 billion over a seven year period until 2013, which represents a 50% rise on average as compared FP6.
