FIVE YEAR ASSESSMENT REPORT RELATED TO THE SPECIFIC PROGRAMME: CONFIRMING THE INTERNATIONAL ROLE OF COMMUNITY RESEARCH, 1995-1999

Funded under: FP5-INCO 2

Abstract

Due to the very special nature and the global relevance of the international RTD activities of the EU the Panel recommends keeping a well-designed, specific programme for this area of Community actions under Framework Programme 6.

The international research dimension of the EU can be motivated by complementary issues such as problems related to global issues (food supply chain, biodiversity, atmospheric pollution, clean and efficient energies, global diseases, health problems), scientific co-operation for economic growth and profit, and research for development.

This view is supported by the problems of globalisation and the challenging tasks to ensure adequate communication channels and very well-designed action lines for collaboration with all categories of countries world-wide. Another aspect is the new organisation of knowledge production and the need for the European Union to tap into sources of knowledge on a global scale.
