Funded under: FP7-CAPACITIES

Abstract

The international competitiveness of modern economies is linked increasingly to their ability to generate, adapt and use new knowledge. Science and technology (S&T) are considered to be key factors contributing to achieving sustainable development, prosperity and economic growth. S&T has also proved instrumental to enhancing and enriching many other policy areas with an impact on external relations: trade, development, environment, energy, telecommunications, etc.
A new approach will be followed in FP7 to support the activities of International Cooperation:
- The theme-oriented international cooperation actions are carried out under the
Cooperation programme;
- The international actions in the area of human potential are carried out under the
People programme;
- Actions of the Capacities Programme are designed to support and stimulate the
participation of third countries in the FP.
