News European parliament adopts report on FP7

The European Parliament has adopted by an overwhelming majority the report outlining the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for RTD. This endorses the structure of FP7. The report now gives broad support to the European Commission's proposed work programme, which will have a budget of €50.521 billion. The Parliament also adopted, by a large majority, the report on the proposed European Atomic Energy Community's seventh Framework Programme (EURATOM). The spokesperson for European Research Commissioner, Janez Potocnik, welcomed the vote, saying it went very much in favour of the Commission's original proposal. The document will now be debated by Member States, before a second reading in the Parliament later this year. Consult Cordis for full details.
