Abstract

This document highlights the activities of the IPTS in 1996. Among the competitive activities, the Institute ran eight Shared-Cost Action projects in 1996. Three of those projects concern the energy sector and were signed at the end of 1995. Among those projects signed in 1996, three concentrate on environmental issues, one on agriculture and one on transport. The setting up of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Bureau within the Technology Watch Unit on behalf of DG XI is another example of a successful competitive activity. The Institute also started two projects for third parties: a peer review of a major german life cycle assessment study undertaken to compare various options for recycling plastic packaging waste; and a project on the technical and legal barriers which represent obstacles for the penetration of renewable energies into energy markets.
