Science and technology is a great tool to achieve integration. Europe as a whole will be a better place to live if we join our forces and cooperate.
(Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for Research and Science)

Framework Programmes – FP are the main instruments for funding research in Europe. It is the frame for the EU activities in the field of science, research and innovation.
Proposed by the European Commission, Framework Programmes are adopted by the EU Council and European Parliament. Each FP is for the period of 5 years with the overlapping of the last year of the previous and first year of the new programme. The first FP was launched in 1984.

Framework Programmes are designed to support a cooperation between universities, research centres and industry (including SMEs), and provide financial support for their common projects.

7th Framework Programme (FP7) is the European Union's main instrument for funding research and development.
While building on the achievements of its predecessor, the Seventh Framework Programme will not be “just another Framework Programme”. In its content, organisation, implementation modes and management tools, it is designed as a key contribution to the re-launched Lisbon strategy.
FP7 is designed to build on the achievements of its predecessor towards the creation of the European Research Area, and carry it further towards the development of the knowledge economy and society in Europe.

FPs have been implemented since 1984 and cover a period of five years with the last year of one FP and the first year of the following FP overlapping. The current FP is FP6, which runs up to the end of 2006.

It has been proposed for FP7, however, to run for seven years. It will be fully operational as of 1 January 2007 and will expire in 2013. It is designed to build on the achievements of its predecessor towards the creation of the European Research Area, and carry it further towards the development of the knowledge economy and society in Europe.

The amended FP7 proposals from the European Commission, following the budget agreement between the European Council and European Parliament amount to a total of EUR 50,521 million.

The broad objectives of FP7 have been grouped into four categories:

  • Cooperation
    Support will be given to the whole range of research activities carried out in trans-national cooperation, from collaborative projects and networks to the coordination of national research programmes. International cooperation between the EU and third countries is an integral part of this action.
    The objective of this action is to support research infrastructures, research for the benefit of SMEs and the research potential of European regions (Regions of Knowledge) as well as to stimulate the realisation of the full research potential (Convergence Regions) of the enlarged Union and build an effective and democratic European Knowledge society.
  • Ideas
    This programme will enhance the dynamism, creativity and excellence of European research at the frontier of knowledge in all scientific and technological fields, including engineering, socio-economic sciences and the humanities. This action will be overseen by a European Research Council
  • People
    Quantitative and qualitative strengthening of human resources in research and technology in Europe by putting into place a coherent set of Marie Curie actions.

In the frame of FP7 in addition, there will be two 'Specific programmes':

  1. Euratom nuclear research and training activities - EURATOM
  2. Joint Research Centre (non-nuclear activities) - JRC


EUR 32,292 million


EUR 7,460 million


EUR 4,727 million


EUR 4,291 million


EUR 1,751 million

EURATOM(to 2011)

EUR 2,751 million


The Cooperation programme is sub-divided into ten distinct themes. Each theme is operationally autonomous but aims to maintain coherence within the Cooperation Programme and allowing for joint activities cutting across different themes, through, for example, joint calls.

The ten identified themes reflect the most important fields of knowledge and technology where research excellence is particularly important to improve Europe's ability to address its social, economic, public health, environmental and industrial challenges of the future.

Their continued relevance will be guaranteed by relying on a number of sources from the research sector, including the European Technology Platforms (ETP). Important themes identified in the Strategic Research Agendas (SRAs) developed by the ETPs are therefore covered by the Cooperation programme.
