The activities of the Research Executive Agency were put under the spotlight in October’s edition of the COST Seminar.

Graham Stroud at the COST Seminar in October 2009

Graham Stroud , Director of the Research Executive Agency (REA) explained how the agency is evaluating proposals and managing projects for a large part of the current research framework programme.

Created by Commission decision, Executive agencies are set up in line with a Council regulation. They take on an operational role implementing Commission programmes only.

Located in Brussels, the REA has a budget of € 6.5 billion. It will last until 2017, supporting projects under FP7. Major tasks include managing the Marie Curie fellowships, specific research grant agreements for the benefit of SMEs, multi-partner projects in space and security research.

The agency also acts as a "one-stop shop" helpdesk for enquiries about FP7. It provides “horizontal” services across the three specific programmes Cooperation, People, Capacities.
