Brussels, 28 January 2002

The Council, on the basis of the political agreement reached by the Research Council on 10 December 2001, adopted a common position on the draft 6th EC Research Framework Programme, covering the 2002-2006 period.

The common position relates specifically to the draft decision concerning the 6th Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities, contributing to the creation of the European Research Area and to innovation (2002-2006). The budget allocated to the EC programme amounts to EUR 16 0 million; a further EUR 1 230 million is forseen for 6th Framework Programme of the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM), which was also the subject of political agreement at the December Research Council.

The common position on the EC programme will be presented to the European Parliament, at its plenary session starting on 4 February, for the second reading under the co-decision procedure. The EURATOM programme will be formally adopted at a later stage, together with the EC Programme.
