High-level representatives of the German EU Presidency and the European Commission will open a major event on European research in Brussels launching the Seventh Framework Programme (2007-2013).  The event will begin with an "Evening on European research" which will comprise:

The exhibition will refer to the European success stories in science and technology and to the achievements of some EU-funded research projects.
