Among the eleven strategic objectives of the Common Strategic Framework established by the European Union, there are several key issues related to the development of research in Europe. The topics identified by the EC concern the strengthening of research, technological development and innovation and the improvement of access, use and quality of information and communications technology and of the investment in the skills and in continuous learning. The EC, to ensure the achievement of these objectives, arranges financing plans that can be accessed by the different countries, with specific procedures for the selection of the projects. It is fundamental, in a context of severe shortage of public funding for Italian research, to know what are the opportunities of the financing plans proposed by the EC and what are the ways to have access to these funds. The opportunities offered by the announcements of European funding are strategic and concrete ways for the development of a high level of nursing research in Italian nephrology and dialysis fields. A first exposure of the framework regarding the EC financing plans is the goal of this work.
