Fourth FP7 Monitoring Report
The fourth FP7 Monitoring Report covers the implementation of the Framework Programme in the years 2007-2010. It is based on the FP7 monitoring system, which was designed as an internal management tool using a core set of performance indicators.
In section 2 this document provides a detailed analysis of FP7 participation patterns in 2010. FP7 implementation management and quality issues are the focus of section 3 and include the current situation with regard to the simplification process and also the results of a survey on the perception of FP7 implementation and simplification by National Contact Points (NCPs). Section 4 presents some the elements of the Framework Programme which deserve a special focus. Section 5 looks at the early achievements of the programme.
