Provide your inputs for the structuring of FP8.
On 9th February 2011, the European Commission presented a Green Paper proposing major changes to EU research & innovation funding to make participation easier, increase scientific and economic impact and provide better value for money. The changes, to be introduced in the next EU budget after 2013, would bring together the current Framework Programme for research, the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme, and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
The Commission is seeking the views of all interested individuals and organisations. There are a number of ways for you to contribute:
- An online questionnaire based on the Green Paper, in particular for interested individuals, companies, research institutes and citizens.
- Submission of written responses, in particular for associations and large organisations that wish to provide in-depth views. Such responses will be published on this site immediately following their submission.
- An interactive blog, where various questions and topics from the Green Paper and from responses received, will be posted on a regular basis for open comment, debate and ideas.
- Events, which are being organised by countries and organisations during the consultation period.
