This report evaluates the European Community's research training fellowship for European scientists as it has operated from 1968 to 1989, and also the fellowships for scientists from Asian, Latin American and Mediterranean countries under the International Scientific Cooperation programme (ISC) from 1985 to 1989. Several conclusions are reached. The EC scheme was too small in scale and faced inconsistent management. It did, however, yield significant benefits for the fellows involved. Fellowships should involve industry more, promote cohesion of peripheral regions and cover social and human sciences. Selection of fellows should be on consistent criteria and by peer review. As for the ISC scheme, it should continue, with some modifications, but the whole programme should be evaluated in depth and in a wider context.
