Statistics show that stakeholders from EU13 countries have benefitted less in absolute terms from their participation in FP7 than those from EU15 countries. This is not a new observation. Since the association of the former Central European Candidate Countries (all of them now regular EU member states) to the 5th European Framework Programme for RTD, it has been argued that within the competitive European Framework Programme for RTD, Central European cohesion countries are at risk of “subsidising” the more competitive, mostly Western European, countries, for various reasons to do with competitiveness (CORDIS focus, 2002; Havas, 1999; Havas 2002; Le Masne, 2001; Mickiewicz and Radosevic, 2001; Nedeva, 1999, Reid et al 2001).
