Article 185 of the Lisbon-Treaty (former article 169) provides the legal basis for the participation of the Union in research and development programmes of member states. In doing so, a flexible collaboration between member states is made possible, which considers the common interests and needs. The objective is to coordinate national R&D programmes in order to achieve a more efficient use of resources.
The initiative for such a measure is formally submitted by the European Commission and accepted by the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament in the ordinary legislative procedure. In FP6, this initiative was only implemented once, namely in establishing the European Developing Countries Clinical Trial Partnership (EDCTP).
The following initiatives were adopted within FP7:
