Sixth Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2002 - 2006)
A common informatics system for the Sixth Framework Programme
To realize the ambitious objectives of the European Research Area and the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) requires not only new policies but also new tools with which to administer the system and communicate. It is against this background that the directorates-general involved in research, and therefore in FP6, have joined together to produce a common informatics system for its implementation (see diagram kB).
In doing so they have agreed to use the most advanced web-based technology to enable both proposers and project participants to communicate with the Commission electronically, thereby rendering the process both more transparent and rapid.
Given the interest of the research community, the scale of the task and the short time scale within which it must be achieved, the Commission has decided to publish its plans for IT developments to be made, except where these relate to security. In doing so it is fully aware that the ongoing political process for the adoption of FP6, its associated specific programmes and the rules for participation may necessitate changes to the proposed system. This web site will therefore be updated to reflect any such changes at the earliest possible opportunity.
