EEA requests association to EU’s Sixth
Framework Programme for research
The EEA’s (European Economic Area) Joint Committee
has sought association to FP6 to ensure its members can get involved
in the programme almost as soon as it begins.
If successful, the move will establish a legal basis
for EEA participation in the EU’s research activities over
the next four years. To set the wheels in motion, one of the protocols
of the EEA’s agreement with the EU will be modified to extend
cooperation to science and technology.
