With its Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) , the EU is promoting outstanding research projects in all academic fields. The framework programme for the period 2007–2013 has a budget of 50.5 billion Euro. With four specific sub-programmes, the FP7 is addressing different directions and target groups. Two of these sub-programmes, "People" and "Ideas", focus particularly on promoting young academics.
