This new edition of the "Practical Guide to EU Funding Opportunities for Research and Innovation" includes a full up-to-date picture of the sources of funding described in the initial Guide, published in 2008. The European Union possesses five key funding opportunities to support research and innovation: the Research Framework Programme, the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, the Structural Funds and the Cohesion Fund within the Cohesion policy; the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Fisheries Fund within the Rural development policy and the Common Fisheries Policy. In 2007 the European Commission published its ideas on "Competitive European Regions through Research and Innovation" and called on Member States and regions to make more effective use of the available funding instruments.
