International Cooperation Partner Countries (in FP) - ICPC

International Cooperation Partner Countries are (as defined for the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development - FP7) lower-income, low-income, lower-middle-income and upper-middle-income countries targeted by the European Commission to increase research cooperation (third countries). Organisations from these countries can participate and receive funding in FP7, providing that certain minimum conditions are met.

From the Western Balkan countries only Kosovo* is an ICPC, as all other Western Balkan countries have become associated countries.

The list of all ICPC in FP7 is available from ftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/fp7/docs/wp/cooperation/cooperation-general-annexes201101_en.pdf
