Roundtable on the Seventh Framework Programme, Brussels, Belgium
A roundtable meeting entitled 'Does the Framework work?' will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 20 November.
This autumn, the European Commission began a full review of its flagship research and development (R&D) funding effort, the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The seven-year, EUR 52.5 billion initiative is vital to the technological and scientific progress of thousands of universities, companies and research institutes, as well as to European competitiveness. The review will assess accomplishments and problems to date in FP7 and set the stage for mid-course adjustments in spending priorities and rules in 2009-10.
This meeting includes some of the key planners and organisers of FP7 at the Commission.
The meeting is intended for:
- corporate R&D and public affairs executives involved in FP7;
- university administrators and principal investigators involved in FP7;
- national delegations, and third-country representatives;
- consultants to FP7 participants.For further information, please visit:
