The Sixth Framework Programme (2002-2006) was adopted by the Council of Ministers on 3 June 2002, including amendments from the European Parliament. However, two more steps remain before the first calls are published in November 2002: the adoption of the Specific Programmes and the Rules for Participation. The European Parliament and Council are currently discussing the two items under the supervision of the Danish presidency.
