Short description: About FP6 research funding programme: sustainable development, global change and ecosystems 
Long description: Covering the period 2002-2006, the Sixth Framework Programme was designed to provide major leverage to the creation of a European Research Area (ERA), where the aim is to provide the EU with a scientific and technological policy that is more effectively coordinated, better managed and more dynamic. Environmental research now forms part of a thematic priority on 'sustainable development, global change and ecosystems', on the same footing as energy and transport. This new research priority will enable progress to be made on promoting the further inclusion of various sustainable development related research themes, mainly by forging closer ties with agricultural and socio-economic research.
