16-07-2001

The purpose of this study is to analyse the new Framework Programme 2002-2006 for Research and Technological Development (FPRTD), with selective comparisons with the preceding framework programmes, particularly the Fifth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (1998-2002). This analysis will focus in particular on the legal, technical and policy aspects of the new framework programme and will be developed on the basis of its essential elements, i.e.: the pillars of the framework programme, particularly the legal basis and criteria for selecting priorities, its structure based on the priority themes, and the instruments for its implementation. A detailed analysis will also be made of the development of the budgets allotted to the framework programmes, particularly to the new Framework Programme for RTD (2002-2006), concluding with a list of the various topical subjects open to public debate.
