[eccr] European Commission approves Proposal on the 7th Framework Programme

Thu Apr 07 17:51:44 GMT 2005

>Dear Colleague,
>I am pleased to inform you that on 6 April 2005, the European Commission 
>has issued its proposal for the 7th Framework Programme for research, 
>technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013). I 
>enclose for your information a link to DG Research  website 
> where you can 
>consult the relevant documents (For collaborative research in 
>Socio-economic Sciences and the Humanities, see Annex I, theme 8 , page 31).
>The Commissionâ¬"s proposal accords an important role to and opportunities 
>for the social sciences and humanities (SSH). This is evident both in 
>terms of budget as well as of the range of actions and types of 
>instruments. The proposed budget of 797 million Euros for collaborative 
>research in SSH represents  a doubling of the Priority 7 budget per year 
>as well as an extension of its duration from 4 to 7 years. This will be 
>the most significant collaborative SSH research effort ever undertaken at 
>the EU or at the international level. At the same time, the social 
>sciences and humanities can and should participate actively in other parts 
>of FP7, for example in the European Research Council, in research 
>infrastructures and in the enhanced opportunities for international S&T 
>The Commissionâ¬"s proposal for FP7 will now be subject of extensive 
>discussions including the various groups and committees of the European 
>Parliament and the Council of Ministers. At the same time, the Commission 
>Services are elaborating the proposals for the Specific Programmes of FP7 
>and, eventually, the Research Agendas/Work Programmes. In order to prepare 
>for these tasks, my Directorate is in the process of developing a first 
>framework for the collaborative research effort under â¬SSocio-economic 
>Sciences and Humanities⬝. This will draw upon the wide ranging 
>consultations which we have held with key stakeholders over the past 9 
>months, the achievements of previous FPs as well as the â¬Sstate of the 
>art⬝ across SSH.
>We will, of course, keep you informed of developments and intend to 
>continue to consult widely over the coming period.
>Yours sincerely,
>T. Lennon
