FP7 in Brief illustration from FP7 in Brief brochure How to get involved in the EU 7th Framework Programme for Research

A pocket guide for newcomers

Who might find this booklet useful?

Do terms like “FP6”, “CORDIS”, “Specific Programme”, “Call for proposals” sound rather familiar to you? Have you participated in earlier EU research Framework Programmes? If so, then you should probably stop reading here. If not, then the following pages might bring you a little closer to participation in “FP7”. This document is a simple guide on how to get involved in the 7th Framework Programme for EU research (FP7), which is the European Union’s main instrument for funding research in Europe.

The guide will tell you which areas and activities the EU plans to fund under the programme, and where to go if you want to apply for that funding.
