Specific Targeted Research Projects will aim at improving European competitiveness and meeting the needs of society or Community policies. They should be sharply focused and will take either of the following two forms, or a combination of the two: a) a research and technological development project designed to gain new knowledge either to improve or develop new products, processes or services or to meet other needs of society and Community policies; b) a demonstration project designed to prove the viability of new technologies offering potential economic advantage but which cannot be commercialised directly. Within the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) generally, specific targeted research projects will be used in implementing the priority thematic areas, in other research areas supporting Community policies and anticipating scientific and technological needs, in specific international co-operation research activities, in activities promoting interaction between research and innovation, and in research activities developing harmonious relations between science and society.
