EU’s main instrument for funding research in Europe for the period 2007 to 2013 is Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). FP7 builds on the accomplishment of a previously strong and growing Indian participation in EU Research Framework Programme.

In FP7, already more than 140 Indian research organisations have been selected for funding in over 90 projects.

India has been considered as a valuable partner for the EU in major international projects such as the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project, GALILEO, the European Satellite Navigation system, and the interlinking of India’s Education Research Network, ERNET, to its pan European equivalent GEANT2.
