Universities in FPs - An Analysis of the Role and Engagement of Universities with Regard to Participation in the Framework Programmes

This projects aims to contribute to the debate on the relationship between EU funding and the involvement of universities in EU programmes, focusing on a systematic investigation of the roles and involvement of universities in FP7.
