Graphic element From Growth to FP6: ‘key actions’ and ‘generic activities’ become ‘thematic priorities’

The Growth Programme brought together a range of ‘key actions’ and ‘generic activities’ in the European Commission’s Fifth Framework Programme (FP5) to promote sustainable industrial growth by stimulating innovation and co-operation in European research and technological development (RTD). Under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), launched in November 2002 with a budget of € 17.5 billion and running until 2006, funding for such industrial research is now provided under a number of ‘thematic priorities’ designed to support the creation of a European Research Area with larger scale research integration, a longer term perspective and a series of new funding instruments .
