The Cooperation Programme of FP7 covers ten themes corresponding to major fields in the progress of knowledge and technology ranging from health to security. All ten themes have an important international dimension (with particular considerations in the security theme owing to confidentiality requirements), and most of the FP7 funding for international cooperation will be available under this Programme.
International collaborative research in the Cooperation Programme is supported in several ways to ensure a balanced thematic and geographic participation by third countries and regions:
- Opening of the thematic areas to all third countries includes dedicated actions and calls for third countries.
- Specific International Cooperation Actions (SICAs) in each thematic area dedicated to third countries where
there is mutual interest on the basis of both the S&T level and the needs of the countries concerned.
The actions apply to the International Cooperation Partner Countries
- Coordinated call is a Framework Programme call that is closely coordinated with a similar call issued by a funding agency in a third country. Through the alignment of content, resources, timing, evaluation criteria and procedures, a coordinated call aims at generating joint or tightly coordinated projects, entailing a balanced partnership.
