The practice of requirements engineering (RE) which includes an iterative process of elicitation, analysis, definition and validation is about the method of translating stakeholders needs, often vague and inconsistent, into something more precise and more consistent, then used to constrain the system during design and development. The Joint Research Centre organized a workshop on RE to identify and prioritize industrial and technological needs. This workshop was held in Brussels on the 12th and 13th September 1996. It continued with the theme of research and development in requirements engineering. There have been, in this domain a number of research projects at both National and European levels. Industrial uptake from these projects has, however, rarely lived up to expectations. The workshop investigated both explanations for this and what possible mechanisms there may be for promoting industrial uptake for current and future projects. The results of the Workshop are presented in this document.
