 The Seventh European Research Framework Programme (FP7) provides
 funding of more than €54 billion over seven years to increase
 Europe’s growth and competitiveness, recognizing that knowledge is
 Europe’s greatest resource. The European Commission has allocated
 these funds for the implementation of the FP7 over the period
 2007–2013. FP7 consists of four specific programmes: cooperation —
 to fund collaborative projects between research teams; ideas — to
 fund excellent individual investigators in cutting edge frontier
 research through European-level competition; people — to fund
 training, mobility and career development of researchers; and
 capacities — to enhance research and innovation capacity throughout
 Europe. http://ec.europa.eu/research/fp7/

 The Cooperation Programme of the Seventh Framework Programme
 provides financial support to researchers in Europe to work together
 on international collaborative research projects to advance
 knowledge, propose solutions to some of the major issues facing us
 today, and develop new technologies for the future. It will promote
 cooperation between universities, industry and research centers
 across the European Union as well as with the rest of the world.
