DG Research of the European Commission is responsible for implementing the Seventh Framework Programme for RTD (FP7).1 This call for tender concerns the FP7 work programme, area "SSH-2007-7.1.1.2", topic "Scale and scope as drivers of the European Research Area".
After the approval by Council and Parliament of the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, the focus in European research policy-making has shifted back to the idea of the European Research Area. A Green Paper re-launching the debate on the issue has been published in 2007. Following a debate with stakeholders, an actionoriented White Paper will be published in 2008.
The idea of the European Research Area was first launched in the year 2000 via a Commission Communication on the issue. The concept was also referred to in the 2000 Lisbon European Council Presidency Conclusions, in which Europe was urged to turn itself into a knowledge-based economy through more and better investment in the knowledge triangle of research, education and innovation.
