  • Final Report - BOOST MT (Support to Maltese Organisations for achieving a good level of Participation in the Sixth Framework Programme and Beyond)


This is the final activity report of the BOOST MT project. Funded by the European Commission (EC) under the Sixth Framework Program (FP6), BOOST MT's main objective was to stimulate, encourage, and facilitate the participation of Maltese organisations, including Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in all the domains and instruments of the FP6, with particular attention to the participation of Maltese organisations in the new instruments - Integrated Projects (IPs) and Networks of Excellence (NoEs).

The specific document provides a summary of the overall project objectives and a thorough overview and describes the major lines of activities to achieve these objectives, which included:
1. stimulating national stakeholders to participate in FP6, whilst at the same time increase European awareness on Malta's research capabilities;
2. encourage Maltese organisations in actively taking part in FP6;
3. facilitate the participation of Maltese organisations by providing support to the local National Contact Points (NCPs) and professional associations.

BOOST MT contributed towards achieving a strong involvement of Maltese entities, thus fostering European integration and the long-term objectives of the European Research Area (ERA). Participation in FP6 was not only relevant to private organisations, but also to public bodies and research institutions. With its approach, the project ensured adequate activities in favour of substantial involvement from all the sectors in the Maltese economic and social environments, thus contributing to the strong and actual integration of Malta into an enlarged and unified Europe.
