The Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) supports innovative research in the coal and steel sectors. The RFCS was created in 2002 - on expiry of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) Treaty. Yearly interests on the assets of the ECSC, some € 50 million a year, are used to fund the research. While complementary to the EU's H2020 Framework Programme, RFCS is managed outside of it and is, from a financial point of view, a unique concept. Steel and coal (and their entire production and utilisation cycle) are key areas for the continuous sustainable economic development of Europe.
