1 EU – 7th Framework Program
2007 - 2013

2 What is FP7? FP7 is short for: Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development It is the European Union’s main instrument for funding research in Europe between 2007 and 2013 FP7 supports research in selected priority areas It represents a 41% budget increase from FP6 at 2004 prices

3 New elements in FP7 vis-à-vis FP6
Duration increased from 5 to 7 years Annual budget increased significantly New structure: Cooperation, Ideas (ERC), People, Capacities, Euratom and JRC activities Basic research (~ €1 billion per year): European Research Council Funding of research infrastructures Flexible funding schemes Simpler procedures

4 Some facts about Israel & the Framework Programs
Israel joined the 4th FP in August 1996 and became the first country, outside the EU, associated to this program. These programs are now the 2nd largest funding source for Israeli universities, after the ISF. About 75% of the Israeli academy international collaboration used to be with the U.S.A, and only about 25% with Europe. Today the relations are almost equal.

5 Advantages for Israel Accessibility to the European market
“Getting closer to Europe” – understanding Europe Exposure to and partnership in new technologies Leverage for implementation of big, visionary and money-abundant projects

6 Budgets for the different FP’s
Israel joined half way FP

7 FP7 Structure Cooperation – Collaborative research
