The framework programmes (FP) of the European Commission have substantially contributed to the funding of research within the European countries. The contribution of the funding provided by the EU relative to the funding available on the national level has steadily increased. European ophthalmology and vision research has benefited from this support provided by the EU. This review introduces the European funding policies and the European Research Area (ERA) and provides a list of all projects in ophthalmology and vision research that have been funded within FP1 to FP6. As an example for new instruments within FP6, Integrated Projects, the EVI-GENORET project is introduced. Finally an outlook for FP7 is provided.
