The SCIENCE plan (1988-1992) and the earlier STIMULATION plan (1983-1988) are unique in that they depend only on science push (as opposed to technology pull) i.e. they fund projects which are presented by the scientists themselves. The report evaluates both SCIENCE/STIMULATION plans, taking evidence from experts and from commissioned evaluation studies. The fundamental recommendation of the report is that the CEC should recognise science as part of the cultural life of Europe and that it underlies its technological future. Furthermore a dedicated programme, covering both personnel and equipment, should be adopted to ensure closer collaboration in science.
