Short description of topics of research programmes

The 6th Framework Programme – FP6

The Sixth Framework Programme covers Community activities in the field of research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) for the period 2002 to 2006. The budget is 17500 MEUR and will be spend on funding of projects. Projects are selected on competitive way based on Calls for Proposals.
