International Cooperation in Health Research, The role of Europe

Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


The partnership in Health Research projects was extended beyond EU Member States and Associated Countries as early as the start of the Sixth Framework Programme in 2002 and partners from almost any country in the world could participate in FP projects. The result of this general opening is that in FP6, 214 partners from 51 non-associated third countries are represented in Health projects. The amount devoted to those partners, mostly those from middle or low income countries is EUR 31 million, or about 1.6% of the total.
In the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) this general opening is continued and a gradual increase in the participation of third countries can be observed from one call to the next. This expansion of the programme is underpinned by the fact that the FP7 is by definition a multi-country programme and therefore lends itself to wider collaboration.
