Brussels, 05 Nov 2002
The latest issue of Euroabstracts, which focuses on the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), is now available.
The magazine gives a breakdown of the scientific challenges and priorities - ranging from combating AIDS and heart disease to sustainable air travel - that will be directing EU supported research over the next five years, and of some of the activities that will follow from them.
This edition includes an interview with Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin, who points out that FP6 brings not just new content but new tools to make research more effective. The integrated projects and networks of excellence are vehicles to focus the scientific resources of the whole of Europe to best effect.
