The total budget of FP7 is 50, 521 billion €. The budget of the specific programme Cooperation is 32,413 billion €. With 64% of FP total budget it is the largest specific programme. Other specific programmes are Ideas (15 %), People (9,5%) and Capacities (8%). The remaining 3,5% is the budget of non-nuclear actions of the Joint Research Centre. The Cooperation programme is made of 10 Themes as illustrated on the slide. The Theme Transport (including Aeronautics) has a budget of 4160 million € (12,8%). The Theme Transport has the third largest budget of the programme, after Information and Communication (9050 million €: 27,9%) and Health (6100 million €: 18,8%). This budget is allocated for the seven years of duration of FP7. I would like to recall that the budget allocated to Transport under FP6 was 1850 million euros. So there is a Transport research budget increase of 60%, if one considers that the duration of the present FP is 7 years. This increase takes account of the enlargement from 15 to 27.
