The Commission has announced the biggest ever set of calls for proposals for research under its Seventh Framework Program (FP7), with a total of €8.1 bn allocated for projects in a wide range of sectors.
“Knowledge is the currency of the global economy,” said European Research, Innovation and Science Commissioner Maire Geoghegan-Quinn. “If Europe wants to continue to compete in the 21st century, we must support the research and innovation that will generate growth and jobs, now and in the future.”
The funding represents the bulk of the EU’s proposed €10.8 bn research budget for 2013.
