CORDIS offers fledging dictionary and new documents on FP6

June 12, 2003

Brussels, 11 Jun 2003

Grant for integration; eligible costs; competitive call; technical collective responsibility; new instruments. Potential participants in the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) need to be familiar with specific terms which refer to the participation process, project implementation, the financial regime and contractual obligations.

CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service, now provides a new glossary gathering most of the terminology currently in use. Users can quickly find words or expressions and obtain a short definition, as well as complementary links to gain more understanding. The feature will enable people to better grasp the jargon describing activities, rules and instruments within FP6.

In addition, potential participants can benefit from reading guidance documents and detailed information on provisions for implementing tools, such as the recently published integrated projects, networks of excellence and specific targeted research projects leaflets; all available in the FP6 Library section.
