Printer-friendly versionPDF version

FP7 is the natural successor of the FP6. The new FP7 was established after consultation with the research communities from both public and private sectors, economic actors and with decision takers in the European Union. FP7 is both larger and more comprehensive than its predecessors. It is also more flexible and with simplified procedures. For detailed information on the previous FP6 programme, please click here.
