In this report an independent panel of external experts evaluate the Stimulation Plan for Economic Science - (1989 - 1992) (SPES), in accordance with the Council decision of 1989. This is the first Community research programme for the economic sciences. The report examines the achievements of the plan, its management and the European dimension of its support. The Panel interviewed research project coordinators and others about the content of the research and its relevance for European economic policy issues. Furthermore a survey was conducted among more than 300 participants in research projects. The main conclusions attribute the success of SPES to the selected projects and to the importance of that research for the EC. A number of recommendations are made, with regard to aspects such as management, research planning and dissemination of results.
