Report
13 March 2015

The European Commission has recently launched a consultation on the ex-post evaluation of the 7th Framework Programme (FP7).

This is an opportunity to provide feedback on institutional experiences with EU research funding programmes to EU policy-makers and thus to shape current and future funding programmes.

The UK HE International Unit will be putting together a sector-wide response. Institutions are asked to provide feedback to this by 18 May. They may also wish to respond to the EC consultation, which will close on 22 May.
