Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development

The Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7 in short) has been the EU's main instrument for funding research in Europe in the period of 2007 – 2013. It is therefore the direct predecessor of Horizon 2020, set to trigger responses at the research level to Europe's needs on employment, competitiveness and quality of life. As Horizon 2020 follows the footsteps of FP7, getting acquainted on past and current projects is an important preparation step for the new programme.
