Environmental problems such as ozone depletion, species loss and global climate change, urban pollution and the contamination of rivers and coastal waters, are rightly tackled at European level. EU research has prioritised issues where transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration are essential - global change, water quality, the marine environment and the quality of life in our cities and their associated cultural heritage - and has prepared the ground for the creation of a true European Research Area in environmental research.

This brochure summarises the achievements of the EU's environmental research programmes since 1973, and presents the work carried out in ten specific areas of research, as well as the European Commission's proposals for environmental research priorities in the 6th Framework Programme.
