Launch of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)

The Framework Programmes (FPs) have been the main financial tools through which the European Union supports research and development activities covering almost all scientific disciplines. The FP is proposed by the European Commission and adopted by Council and the European Parliament. FPs have been implemented since 1984. FP7 will be fully operational as of 1 January 2007 and it has been proposed to run for seven years.

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 overarching aim is to contribute to sustainable development, comprising nine high level themes such as health, food, agriculture and biotechnology.
