Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The Decisions for the fourth framework programme and the Euratom framework programme require that the Commission shall have an external assessment conducted by independent experts into the management and progress with Community activities carried out during the five years preceding this assessment. It shall communicate this assessment and conclusions, accompanied by its comments, to the European Parliament, the Council and the Economic and Social Committee prior to submitting its proposal for the next framework programme. This communication presents the report prepared by a high-level independent expert panel (Part A). The report, which subsumes the final evaluation under the third framework programme, gives a high-level strategic assessment and a set of corresponding recommendations. The opinions expressed in the report are those of the expert panel and are given under its responsibility. Part B presents the Commission's comments on the recommendations of the expert panel.
