Preparation of the Fourth Framework Programme for Community research and technological development (1994 to 1998) took a step forward in April 1993 with the adoption by the Commission of a working document containing guidelines for the new programme. This article is based on a press release issued by the Commission on 22 April 1993. It discusses the new initiatives in the Fourth Framework Programme which are presented under the following headings: (i) focus on a smaller number of research areas; (ii) closer integration of RTD activities in Europe; (iii) greater synergy with the structural policies and better circulation of results; (iv) better information for better decisions. A breakdown of funding for the Framework Programme is given, and structure and research areas are outlined.
