    On September 11, IKBFU hosted an information event dedicated to the possibility of participating in the seventh EU Framework Programme for Research. The programme was presented by the Minister Counsellorfor Science and Technology at the EU Delegation to Russia, Manuel Hallen.

    Mister Hallen, could you give us a brief overview of the seventh EU Framework Programme?

    This programme is meant to bring together scholars from European countries in order to improve the research infrastructure, develop research in Europe, and increase the competitiveness of EU in priority research areas. The first framework programme was launched in 1984. Since then, EU Framework Programmes for Research have played an important role in the development of interdisciplinary research and support for joint research initiatives in Europe and beyond. The programmes are developed on the recommendation of the European Commission and adopted by the European Council of Ministers and the European Parliament.

    The seventh framework programme sets out to coordinate national research programmes of EU member states, combine research efforts of different universities and research centres, and establish contacts between research laboratories and businesses. Scholars and research groups from different European countries should work together.

    Today, the programme is at its final stage. The last application call took place in July. After the project is closed, the new Horizon 2020 programme will be launched. It will be implemented from 2014 through 2020.

    Who is eligible to participate in the seventh Framework Programme?

    Scholars from different countries – not necessarily EU member states – can take part in the programme. The main requirement is that the project consortium includes at least three partners from EU member states, associated countries or aspirants. In effect, the number of countries constituting the consortium exceeds these minimum requirements.

    We publish information on the programme calls and specify research areas for future projects. The topics offered cover different fields of knowledge – healthcare, nanotechnologies, energy, engineering, environment, etc. The most important is that the projects meet the requirements formulated for each research area.

    What projects have already been implemented in the Framework Programme?

    A large number of projects have already been implemented. It would take a lot of time to name them all. As to Russia, this country is one of the active participants. Approximately 300 initiatives are being implemented at the moment involving more than 400 Russian researchers. These projects cover all topics announced.

    What in your opinion are the prospects of Kaliningrad in the seventh Framework Programme?

    As to Kaliningrad, it is difficult to give any exact numbers. The most active Russian territories are Moscow and the Moscow region, which account for 50% of Russian participation, followed by Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Nizhny Novgorod, and Tomsk. Unfortunately, Kaliningrad has not been very active in our programme, but I hope that the situation will change for the better.
