The European Union funds collaborative research projects under the 6th Framework Programme (2002-2006).
In several fields of research, some of the funded projects involve stem cells, either studying stem cells themselves, or using them as discovery means or biological tools in a broader context.
A brochure of running FP6 projects involving stem cells can be downloaded here. It is regularly updated with new projects, so please check for the date.
Stem Cells - European research projects involving stem cells in the 6th Framework Programme - updated 2008 ( 5.8MB)
All of the listed projects have at least one component of stem cell research, or use stem cells as research tools. Projects which only use stem cells as nonspecific tools, in particular to create animal models, are nevertheless not included in the catalogue, since such techniques are used by almost all life science laboratories on a daily basis.
