Iceland presents position on FP9
On 7 July 2017, Iceland published its position on the next Framework Programme. According to the paper, FP9 should aim to support sustainable and inclusive growth in Europe, and it should be committed to delivering true European added value, complementing, as well as providing leverage to, national research and innovation activities. Iceland states that FP9 should take a clear lead in addressing global challenges through global partnership and cooperation, upholding the ambitions of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Iceland has participated in the EU’s Framework Programmes as an EEA EFTA country since 1994. This paper presents Iceland’s preliminary views on some key aspects of FP9.TOP
