7th Research Framework Programme
The objective of health research under FP7 is to improve the health of European citizens and boost the competitiveness of health-related industries and businesses, as well as address global health issues.
The Health theme is a major theme of the Cooperation programme and the EU has earmarked a total of € 6.1 billion for funding this theme over the duration of FP7.
The specific programme on 'Cooperation' supports all types of research activities carried out by different research bodies in trans-national cooperation and aims to gain or consolidate leadership in key scientific and technology areas. FP7 allocates EUR 32.4 billion to the Cooperation programme. The budget will be devoted to supporting collaborative projects across the European Union and beyond. The Cooperation programme is sub-divided into ten distinct themes, the first of which is Health.
