Framework Program 9 will succeed the Horizon 2020 programme soon and the proposal for it is expected before the summer of 2018. European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), an EU Parliament Think Thank, has issued a paper giving an overview of the preparations for FP9.

In preparation for the FP9 there has been feedback from H2020 as well as FP7. Also, a number of suggestions and contributions from various stakeholders, EU institutions, advisory commitees and the Member states. The paper provides a brief mid-term overview of H2020 as well as offers some expert studies made for FP9.

The paper draws attention to a number of key points which will most likely be an integral part of the program. One of the most important points would be that the FP9 budget will most likely be in the range of 120 to 160 billion euro.

In addition to this, there will also be focus on simplicity and flexibility in the FP9 compared to the previous framework programmes. While this is important there will still be an emphasis on continued excellence.

FP9 will also focus on EU collaboration and cohesion, especially so in the context of sciences. This is related to the fact that the “old” member states are ahead in collaborating and participating in the programs. The gap between the “new” and “old” member states seemed to be widening with each successing framework programm. However, the FP9 will focus on bridging this gap. This could be achieved if the FP9 would work in greater synergy with the EU structural funds, ESIF.
