Q: What will be the procedure for further Article 185 initiatives during the FP7 (“2nd train” of Article 185 initiatives)?
A: Depending on the experience with this first series of potential Article 185 initiatives, further initiatives could be proposed as a "second train" during the lifetime of FP7. In developing these proposals, account will be taken of the outcome of the mid-term evaluation of the Article 169 initiatives which are up and running. The Commission is, however, conscious of the need to remain open to further initiatives, to take account of newly emerging areas which are not foreseen at the beginning of FP7, or to enable initiatives which are not yet sufficiently mature to be implemented at a later stage. Following the mid-term review of the FP7, new Article 185 decisions may be adopted after a modification of the Specific Programmes decisions.
