What is FP7

The 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) is the EU’s main instrument for funding research and innovation. In principle, as is the case with all EU grants, the Framework Programmes are based on co-financing, although for some organisations and certain activities, up to 75% or 100% of the eligible costs may be reimbursed.

Specific funding opportunities are announced through calls for proposals, published in the EU Official Journal and then published on CORDIS. In addition, calls for tender are published in Tenders Electronic Daily, a supplement to the Official Journal.

A network of National Contact Points (NCPs) has been set up to give personalised help, and should be your first contact point for information and assistance. This network is the main structure to provide guidance, practical information and assistance on all aspects of participation in FP7. Find your National Contact Point here.
