Q: What is an indirect action in FP6?
A: In indirect actions, research and other activities are carried out by legal entities (e.g. enterprises, research institutions, universities etc.) in their own interest, with funding by the EU Framework Programme. Most of the indirect actions are based on shared costs, i.e. the Community contribution covers a percentage of the overall costs. Results are, in general, owned by the institutions carrying out the actions. The bulk of FP6 is implemented by indirect actions (for comparison see also direct action).
