“Many things difficult to design prove easy to performance” Samuel Johnson
"Research" is the engine of development. The European Union puts it, with education and innovation, in the so-called "knowledge triangle" to strengthen the EU growth and employment in a globalized economy. The Seventh Research Framework Program, covering the period 2007-2013, is for the EU a good opportunity to bring its research policy at the level of its economic and social ambitions, consolidating the European Research Area (ERA). To achieve this objective, the Commission has increased the annual EU budget for research in order to stimulate domestic and private investments. Knowledge and technology are the main resources of the EU representing the basis for growth and employment. The Framework Program funds a large number of high level projects and strengthens the innovation capacity of the European Union.
