Abstract

This publication contains the synopses of a range of co-operative research projects relevant to agricultural, agro-industrial and fisheries research that are selected and funded under the FAIR programme. This programme of research and technological development in the field of Agriculture and Fisheries, including Agro-Industry, Food Technologies, Forestry, Aquaculture and Rural Development, was adopted on 26 April 1994 as part of the Community's Fourth Framework Programme. It concerns agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fishery, aquaculture and related food and non-food industries. The FAIR programme represents a natural evolution of the previous programmes CAMAR, BIOMASS, ECLAIR, FLAIR, FOREST and FAR adopted under the Second Framework Programme and of AIR, adopted under the Third Framework Programme. The ultimate objective of the FAIR programme was to contribute to securing a better match between production of land and water-based biological resources and their use by consumers and industry through pre-competitive research, technological development and demonstration. The programme was organized into five distinct scientific and technical areas:
-Integrated production and processing chains.
-Scaling-up and processing methodologies.
-Generic science and advanced technologies for nutritious foods.
-Agriculture, forestry and rural development.
-Fisheries and aquaculture. ure.
