The Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6) is a decisive step towards marshalling Europe’s research and scientific networks and the European Union (EU) into the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world.

FP6¹. is the Union’s main instrument for funding research in Europe. Proposed by the European Commission and adopted on 3 June 2002 by the Council of Ministers and European Parliament, it is open to public and private entities, large or small, for four years from the end of 2002 through to 2006.

The overall budget for FP6 is €17.5 billion, which is 17% more than the Fifth Framework Programme and represents 3.4% of the EU’s total budget in 2002.
Within this total, €12 billion has been set aside for the seven key areas or ‘thematic priorities’ earmarked to achieve FP6 objectives:

  1. Life sciences, genomics and biotechnology for health,
  2. Information society technologies,
  3. Nanotechnologies and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials, and new production processes and devices,
  4. Aeronautics and space,
  5. Food quality and safety,
  6. Sustainable development, global change and ecosystems
  7. Citizens and governance in a knowledge-based society.

Satellite navigation system Galileo is a joint initiative of the European Space Agency and the European Union. Its development is divided into several phases, during which many projects are conducted. Some of these projects are financed by the EU in the Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.

Galileo is a part of thematic priority Aeronautics and space. Total budget of his priority is 1,182 billion euro with about 100 million devoted to Galileo development. It is a continuation of activities carried out under the 5 Framework Programme.

We present you the most important pilot projects realized in the 5 Framework Programme and in the first and second Galileo call under the 6 FP.
