Slovenia successfully participated in 5th and 6th Framework programmes. The FP6 ended at the end of last year. Participants from Slovenia participate in all priorities and quite a lot have been from business sector. FP7, proposed by Commissioner Potočnik, lasting for the first time for seven years, starting at the end of last year, is a continuation of the FP6 but it introduces several new items and features. The basic research as a new type of EC research funding with new rules is directed by the last year established European Research Council (ERC). Usual research activities are grouped under Collaborative research umbrella which incorporates 10 thematic areas including Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies (NMP) as Thematic priority 4 and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as Thematic priority 3. The first FP7 calls were the last Christmas presents. Work programmes, defining detailed work plan for each thematic priority and defining calls details, are under preparation and adoption for the 2008 calls which are planned to be announced before the end of this year. EU adopted in summer 2005 a document Nanosciences and nanotechnologies: An action plan for Europe 2005-2009; the first intermediate report was prepared in September 2007 by EC.
