The European Commission has published a call for proposals for 'stepping up economic and technological intelligence' under the 'research and innovation' thematic priority of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).

Each economic and technological intelligence activity should address a specific research theme or industrial sector. In the second call, projects should concentrate on:

Interested parties are invited to submit proposals using the 'specific support action' and 'coordination action' instruments.
