Commission launches public consultation on FP7
The European Commission launched a public consultation on the achievements of FP7 (2007-2013) on 23 February 2015. According to the Commission, the results of this consultation will feed into the ex-post evaluation of FP7 to be carried out by an independent external High Level Expert Group, which will assess the achievements and impact of FP7 (2007-2013). The FP7 ex-post evaluation is also intended to help to improve the implementation of Horizon 2020 (2014-2020) and the design of future framework programmes.
The consultation collects views on the overall management of FP7, the impact of the simplification measures, and the achievements of the supported activities. The European Commission invites individuals, groups or organisations who have had direct experience with FP7, or just wish to give their opinion, to contribute. The consultation will close on 22 May 2015.
