The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)

The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) was officially launched in December 2006. It will run for seven years (2007-2013) with a total budget of Euro 50.5 billion and it is open to China. The EU Framework Programme is the umbrella term for the European Commission’s initiative to support and encourage research and it is one of the largest official science and technology programmes in the world. With the widest range of areas covered and the largest amount of funds involved, the programme focuses on research at the frontiers of technology and S&T (Science & Technology). The EC implements and supervises this programme as well as liaisons among the EU member states on scientific research projects. This programme has been the main tool of the EU to implement scientific strategies and activities over the last 20 years.

Themes of FP7:
• Health
• Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Biotechnology
• Information & communication technologies (ICT)
• Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies
• Energy
• Environment (including climate change)
• Transportation (including aeronautics)
• Socio-economic sciences and the humanities
• Space
• Security

EUPIC successfully applied and is currently executing a project named ‘ChinaAccess4EU’ under FP7 together with its EU and Chinese partners such as the Torch Centre (China Ministry of Science and Technology), Tsinghua University and Steinbeis Europa Zentrum, Steinbeis Innovation. This project aims to promote cooperation in science and technology between the EU and China by increasing awareness in the member states and associated countries of the access opportunities for European researchers and research organizations in Chinese national research and/or innovation programmes.
