The objective of ICT research under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) is to improve the competitiveness of European industry– as well as to enable Europe to master and shape the future developments of these technologies so that the demands of its society and economy are met.

The ICT Theme is the largest research theme in the Cooperation programme with a total of 9.1 billion for funding all along FP7.

FP7 research activities will strengthen Europe’s scientific and technology base and ensure its global leadership in ICT, help drive and stimulate product, service and process innovation and creativity through ICT use and ensure that ICT progress is rapidly transformed into benefits for Europe’s citizens, businesses, industry and governments.
