Abstract

The report summarizes the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the independent external experts' panel which was entrusted by the Commission of the European Communities with the task of evaluating research carried out within the framework of the Community's Bureau of Reference (BCR) over the period 1983 to 1987. The terms of reference included the assessment of the scientific and technical achievements; the assessment of the contribution of the BCR programme to the development of Community policies and the social and economic development of the Community in general; and the evaluation of the effectiveness of the management and utilization of resources. The panel paid much attention to managerial aspects suggesting improvements aimed at bringing and keeping the programme better in line with existing needs in the field of reference materials and applied metrology.
