New Service to Help UK Universities and Businesses Access EU Research and
A new Government initiative, FP6UK, was launched today
to help UK organisations benefit from European Union funding for research
and development projects.
The Framework Programme is the EU’s main way of providing funding for
collaborative research and innovation. It aims to strengthen European
research and technological capability and encourage Europe’s international
competitiveness. It is open to all types of organisations in the EU, as
well as a number of non-EU countries.
The current Framework Programme, called FP6, has an overall budget of
€17.5 billion and will run until the end of 2006. The Government,
recognising the vital importance of this research to the UK economy, has
long provided a wide range of expert help and support to UK organisations
seeking funding under the many areas of Framework Programmes through its
network of National Contact Points (NCPs).
The launch of FP6UK will make it easier for UK organisations
to become aware of the opportunities offered by FP6 and will, for the
first time, enable them to access this wide range of NCP experts through a
single, centralised information and promotion service.
Lord Sainsbury, Minister for Science and Innovation, said:
"Research and development is essential to the health and wealth of the UK.
The EU funding is a vital resource for universities and businesses. Our
new service will provide seamless support for applicants from their
initial enquiry through to, hopefully successful, final awards.“
can be contacted online at
or through a central telephone support number, 0870 600 6080, which can
answer all general enquiries about FP6 as well as point callers directly
to the relevant NCPs covering their specific area of interests.
