I am very pleased to present this selection of success stories from the EU’s Sixth Framework Programme for Research.
It would take a much bigger publication than this to cover all the research and new knowledge created by this multi-disciplinary, international research programme We have, however, tried to include enough exciting and innovative projects to give you a good overall picture.
In the following pages you will find researchers working in locations as diverse as the frozen wastes of the Arctic, the depths of the oceans and the windswept deserts of central Asia, as well as many more who work in the more traditional setting of the laboratory. They work in disciplines ranging from chemistry to the economy (and many, many more) and come from every corner of the EU and beyond.
Between them, the projects covered here touch on every aspect of our daily lives, from our health, our environment and the food we eat, to the way we travel and how our energy is produced.READ MORE
