8 From Project-thinking to Initiative-thinking From Project-thinking to Initiative-thinking –new instruments: Integrated Projects & Networks of Excellence –more strategic thinking Develop Europe-wide approaches Develop Europe-wide approaches –making sure that Community funding helps aggregate EU, Member State & private funded effort(s) –it is not just supporting a particular RTD work… Different way of describing content and calls Different way of describing content and calls –a lighter workprogramme, different sequencing of calls,... FP6 is not business as usual! ERA - implies a new way of thinking
