Assessment of the Impact of the 6th Framework Programme on New European Union Member States

The purpose of the project, financed through FP7, is to assess the evolving participation of the 12 new Member States in the 6th Framework Programme and into Community research activities in general. Specifically, the assessment addresses nine evaluation questions covering quantitative and qualitative aspects of the new Member States' FP6 participation, such as: Level of participation, policy and overall conditions for FP involvement, impact of participation, and barriers and success factors to participation.

Project participants: Karen Siune and Evanthia Kalpazidou Schmidt
