Abstract

This booklet presents the results of three studies of the impacts of EU funded research projects in industrial technologies. The First Impact Assessment revizits projects four years after their completion. Selected Brite-Euram projects have been assessed, and their actual performance compared with predictions made at the time of their completion. Almost half of the industrial partners and contract research organizations have shown increased turnover as a direct consequence of exploiting Brite-Euram project results. The Sixth Brite-Euram Project Evaluation analyses projects at their conclusion and forecasts their impact over the coming five years. This year, CRAFT projects are also evaluated. The SMT Survey presents the first published results of the evaluation of projects funded under the Standards, Measurements and Testing programme. SMT activities will be integrated with the Brite-Euram activities in the Fifth Framework Programme.
