Framework Programme 7
During the first fifth years of Framework Programme 7 (2007-2012), CERN participated in successful proposals for 76 new EU projects with durations of two to five years. Of these projects, 31 are coordinated by CERN, an increase from FP6.
In addition to the Research Infrastructure, e-Infrastructure, and Marie-Curie programmes, in which CERN has been actively involved for some time, the Organization is also participating in the Cooperation, Science and Society, and Ideas programmes of FP7.
Currently, more than 200 staff, fellows and associates are working on different EU projects at CERN.
