Disability Research in the 6th Framework Programme (2002-2006), under SSP priority: "Quality of life issues relating to handicapped/disabled people (including equal access facilities)"

Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

The 6th Framework Programme for Research1 provided for policy-oriented research that is relevant to the area of public health and social policy, relating in particular to the implementation of the European Social Agenda. This is to be found in the specific programme for research, technological development and demonstration: "Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area (2002-2006)" under the policy-oriented research strand: "Providing health, security and opportunity to the people of Europe". The "Scientific Support to Policies" initiative aims to provide scientific underpinning and the evidence base needed by European Union (EU) policymakers to take concerted and coordinated action.
There were three Areas of direct relevance to the area of public health and social policy under the research strand "Providing health, security and opportunity to the people of Europe". These were: Area 2.1 "Health determinants and the provision of high quality and sustainable health care services and pension systems (in particular in the context of ageing and demographic change)"; Area 2.2 "Public health issues, including epidemiology contributing to disease prevention and responses to emerging rare and communicable diseases, allergies, procedures for secure blood and organ donations, non-animal test methods"; and Area 2.4 "Quality of life issues relating to handicapped/disabled people (including equal access facilities)".
