Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Research: EU support in the Sixth Framework Programme (2002-2006)



Diseases of the heart and circulatory system (cardiovascular disease) are the main cause of death in Europe.
Cardiovascular research has an excellent track record of leading to a better understanding of the normal functioning and the pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system, and of translating that knowledge into new treatments. Investment in cardiovascular research brings results.
The main instrument of the European Union (EU) for research funding is the Framework Programme (FP). The Sixth Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration activities (FP6) covers the four-year period 2002-2006.
