Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Since their debut in 1984, the EU Framework Programmes in Research and Technological Development have progressively allowed the mobilization of the various research actors in Europe. At present the effort is underway to better channel the procedures in order to reach significant results in certain priority domains. In this spirit, the Commission decided to create the "Task Forces", with the following objectives: to define research priorities in strict consultation with the socioeconomic actors; to reinforce the coordination between Community, national and private research activities; to stimulate an environment favourable to innovation. The lessons that can be drawn from this new approach will aid reflection on the orientation and modalities for action in the wider research community. Several "Task Forces" have been created recently in the domains of the information society, transport, and life science technologies. This document presents the "Task Force" devoted to the domain of water.
