Summary

Slightly better off

Better off, but less than appears

Most significantly better off

CSAs much worse, RTD as for SMEs

* Note that Demonstrations now being funded at 50% instead of 35% under FP6, could have a negative as well as positive impact on participants who are not large industrial companies. As the latter most often co-ordinate, they have less reason not to include "Demonstration" activity. However such an inclusion could reduce others funding from 75% to 50%.
