European Union Sixth Framework Programme (EU FP6)
Back to Resources Home
European Union's 6th Framework Programme (FP6) is the Unionís main instrument for the funding of research in Europe. Proposed by the Commission and adopted by the Council and Parliament in co-decision, it is open to all public and private entities, large or small.

The overall budget covering the four-year period 2003 - 2006 is 17.5 billion Euro, representing an increase of 17% from the Fifth Framework Programme and making up 3.9% of the Unionís total budget (2001), and 6% of the Unionís public (civilian) research budget. There are no national quotas for FP6 funds.

Seven key areas for the advancement of knowledge and technological progress within FP6 have been chosen:

  • Life Sciences, Genomics and Biotechnology for Health
  • Information Society Technologies
  • Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences
  • Aeronautics and Space
  • Food Quality and Safety
  • Sustainable Development, Global Change and Ecosystems
  • Citizens and Governance in a Knowledge-based Society


  • With a view towards achieving the biggest possible impact over 12 billion Euro is being allocated to these thematic areas.
