Make contacts or arrange meetings online prior to FP6 launch event

September 11, 2002

Brussels, 10 Sep 2002

The European Commission has launched a web service to enable those attending the launch of the Sixth Framework programme (FP6) in Brussels on 11 November to establish contacts, register interests and arrange meetings before arriving.

With only two months to go until to launch event, over 2000 people have already registered. While most of those registered will come from EU Member States, others will come from countries as diverse as the USA and Albania. Some 20 per cent of registrations have come from EU candidate countries, with Poland fifth in the overall league table.

A surge in bookings is also expected before 15 September, when the registration fee will rise from 180 euro to 250 euro (or 60 euro to 80 euro for accession countries).

So far, the highest number of registrations has come from the UK, with nearly 300, followed by Germany at around 200.
