Abstract

Fact sheets of 25 research projects funded under the Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6)
The European Community's Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6) was adopted in September 2002 by the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament. It had an overall budget of EUR 17.5 billion until end 2006. One of the seven thematic priorities was Information Society Technologies (IST), with an indicative budget of EUR 3.6 billion for the five year period.
Based on the concept of the European Research Area, FP6 aimed at channelling support into actions and projects designed to build partnerships among Europe's best researchers. The bulk of funding was concentrated on large-scale projects with the potential of having an integrating effect on Europe's research landscape, resulting in a common endeavour and leveraging a critical mass of research efforts, scientific excellence, knowledge, financial resources and infrastructure. As regards the technical content, FP6 focused on specific themes that are strategically important to Europe's future.
