Abstract

Council Decision concerning the specific programme to be carried out by means of direct actions by the Joint Research Centre under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007 to 2013) In accordance with Article 166(3) of the Treaty, Decision No 1982/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities, (2007 to 2013) is to be implemented through specific programmes that define detailed rules for their implementation, fix their duration and provide for the means deemed necessary.
The Joint Research Centre, hereinafter referred to as 'the JRC' should carry out so-called direct R & D activities under a JRC specific programme implementing the EC Framework Programme.
In implementing its mission, the JRC should provide the EU policy-making process with customer-driven scientific and technical support, ensuring support to the implementation and monitoring of existing policies and responding to new policy demands. In order to achieve its mission the JRC should carry out research of the highest comparable European quality, including by maintaining its own level of scientific excellence.
The direct actions conducted by the JRC should be implemented by the present specific programme. In implementing this specific programme in accordance with its mission, the JRC should place particular emphasis on areas of key concern for the Union: prosperity in a knowledge-intensive society, solidarity, sustainability and responsible management of resources, security and freedom, and Europe as world partner.
