The general ECTRI Strategy and the shaping of European research around the preparation of 8th Framework Programme (FP8), are strong linked. A contribution to the thinking on the form and content of the FP8 is therefore a major task to undertake. ECTRI is willing to prepare a common contribution to the FP8 in cooperation with its partners from the ‘Lyon Declaration’, EURNEX, FEHRL, FERSI, HUMANIST, ISN, NEARCTIS.
The Task Force Preparation FP8 is led by INRETS, France.
The ECTRI members CDV, DLR, TNO and UPM are participating to this Task Force.
