    FET supports collaborative research in order to extend Europe’s capacity for advanced and paradigm-changing innovation. It shall foster scientific collaboration across disciplines on radically new, high-risk ideas and accelerate development of the most promising emerging areas of science and technology.

    • FET Proactive is a top-down scheme that addresses research and technological innovation in selected themes defined in consultation with the research community.
    • FET Flagships are ambitious, large-scale, science-driven, multidisciplinary research initiatives with the potential to put Europe in the forefront of science and provide a basis for future technological innovation and economic exploitation.
