Information for proposers
Are you interested in submitting a research proposal in the area of food
quality and safety? The sixth EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development
(FP6) can provide you with support .
Regularly (at least once a year), the Commission publishes calls for proposals
in the area of Food Quality and Safety. Please visit the CORDIS website and find the current calls
opened in this area. From there, you can also gather the updated information you need to
prepare and submit a proposal (work programmes, priorities, timetables, guides for proposers,
and other relevant information).
FP6 operates five different types of instruments through which research projects
can obtain funding. These are Integrated Projects (IP), Networks of Excellence (NoE), Specific
Targeted Research Projects (STREP), Coordination Actions (CA) and Specific Support Actions (SSA).
IPs and NoEs are new instruments aimed at attaining critical mass, integrating research capacities
and managing simplification and European added value. For a detailed overview of the existing
instruments, visit the following link http://cordis.europa.eu/fp6/instruments.htm.
