This report presents the results of a study of mechanisms of aeronautical research and technology acquisition in the European Community. The main objective of the study was to provide the Commission with guidance and recommendations on possible improved methods for organising intra-European research and technology acquisition in the field of aeronautics, and on the role that the Community could play. The study, which was initiated in 1991, included as a crucial feature consultations with key individuals in industry, government authorities, research institutes and universities. The report presents a survey of the present arrangements for aeronautical research in Europe, an assessment of their adequacy, and proposals for improvement along three main lines: strategy developments, plans and programmes and organisational developments.
