On 29 April 2011, EPPSA (the European Power Plant Suppliers Association) organised a Policy Breakfast on EU "FP8" - state of play. Towards the future EU research and innovation funding.
The Seventh Framework Program (FP7) funding has played, and still plays, an essential role to promote research and development activities in all sectors. It will soon come to en end. In this context, the European Commission presented a Green Paper which proposes major changes to be introduced in the next EU research & innovation funding from 2013 onwards.
With the participation of Dr. Vassilios Kougionas, Research Programme Officer from the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research & Innovation, this discussion aimed at shedding light on the future "Eighth Framework Programme", offering the present stakeholders an inside into the position of the European Commission. Mr Kougionas' presentation can be downloaded from the EPPSA web site: www.eppsa.eu.
