Ex Post Evaluation of the 7th EU Framework Programme


essential ingredients for success in science and innovation

Ex‐Post‐Evaluation of the 7th EU Framework Programme (2007‐2013)

On 19 November Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, received the report of the independent High Level Expert Group (HLEG) that has evaluated the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). The report was presented in Brussels by the Chair of the Group, Louise O. Fresco, President of the Executive Board of Wageningen University and Research Centres, accompanied by the Group's Rapporteur, André Martinuzzi, Head of the Institute for Managing Sustainability, Vienna University of Economics and Business.

This report fulfils the obligation set out by the legal basis of FP7 to carry out an independent external
evaluation of the rationale, implementation and the achievements of the Framework Programme two years
after its completion. Since the last work programme of FP7 was implemented in 2013, the High Level Expert
Group for the ex‐post evaluation of FP7 was set up in November 2014 and tasked with carrying out this

The objective of this report is to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of FP7 and to summarize what FP7 has achieved and what shortcomings in its design and implementation could be identified. It aims toprovide key insights that will help guide the future design of European Research Framework Programmes as well as Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) policies on the EU and national levels. The point of reference for this evaluation is the aims and objectives of FP7 as set out at the time of its adoption, wider EU policy goals regarding the European Research Area and the Europe 2020 Strategy.
