In this project, we will try to analyze the reasons of why European Union (EU) Framework Programmes (FP) has not been generating satisfactory results since the first framework programme was launched in 1984.

To do our analysis, we will first give some information about the first five FPs. We will try to address the issues such as the reasons of launching FPs, how they work, who participate and some special characteristics of each FP.

Then, in the analysis part, we will present you the criticisms about FPs which are reorganized and processed by us according to our course material. Then we will analyze those criticisms in terms of our conceptual model. We will point out the critical issues arising from the criticisms, and then analyze those with the help of a matrix regarding the ETM system dimensions and life cycle dimensions.

After all, we will present you the sixth FP in order to point out which of the criticisms were addressed or covered by it.

Finally, we will mention about the lessons learned and then present our recommendations based on our analysis part and the sixth FP. At last, the conclusion takes place.

Note: The presentation associated with this project is included here as a supplemental file.
