Summary "This book is about the design of European research policy. It tells the story of how the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development came to be and looks at its expected impacts. With its detailed analysis of the factors and actors, political constraints and opportunities, societal challenges and expectations shaping research policy, the book provides a peek into what is sometimes perceived as the black box of EU policy making."--Jacket
