The Commission draws up work programmes setting out detailed implementation plans for each of the FP6 specific programmes . The work programmes are revised at least annually. They describe the objectives, and the activities to be undertaken - thematic priority areas to be addressed, instruments to be used, selection procedures and criteria, and deadlines . Calls for proposals are based on the work programmes, and the extent to which a proposal addresses the objectives of the relevant work programme is one of the most important evaluation criteria - it would be hard to prepare a successful proposal without studying the work programme. The relevant sections of the work programme are published as part of the information package for each call.

The Commission invited expressions of interest (EoI) in the field of Science & Society between 1 April and 2 June 2003. The aim was to provide an opportunity in the first year of the programme for researchers and other interested parties to come forward with ideas that could be included in future editions of the work programme.

The work programme for 2004, taking account of the submissions received, will be published towards the end of 2003.
