Period of consultation
From 24/07/2009 to 30/09/2009 (previously 15/09/2009)
Objective of the consultation
In 2010, the European Commission plans to issue a Communication on possibilities for simplifying the implementation of the EU RTD Framework Programmes. For gathering ideas, the Commission opens here a first informal consultation. Ideas are sought under two broad headings:
  • Improvements to processes and systems that could be implemented under the current legal basis of the 7th Framework Programme (e.g. better guidance and communication, improved workflows, improved IT systems...).
  • More profound changes of the modes of implementation of the EU research budget that would require adaptations to the legal basis (in particular the Framework Programme, Rules for Participation, model grant agreements).
