Proposals for a Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research, 2007-2013

The political context and objectives for this proposal are set out in the communication "Building the ERA of knowledge for growth" presented at the same time by the Commission.
Knowledge is at the core of the
Lisbon agenda, and underpins all its elements. Research and technology are, together with education and innovation, the components of the "Triangle of knowledge".
To become the "most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world" while maintaining the "European Model", Europe must increase its research effort to 3% of EU GDP and better exploit its capacities in this field, transforming scientific results into new products, processes and services.
Alongside the Member states and in close cooperation with them, the EU must mobilise its legal and financial tools towards this goal, starting with the research Framework Programme.
