Following a Research Council Resolution of 15 June 2000, the European Commission established five expert groups to analyse the five themes selected by the Council as requiring methodologies for benchmarking:
Human resources in RTD, including the attractiveness of science and technology professions;
Public and private investment in R&D;
Scientific and technological productivity;
Impact of RTD on economic competitiveness and employment;
Promotion of RTD culture and public understanding of science.

This booklet reproduces the executive summaries and tables of contents of each of the five reports produced by the expert groups. The full reports can be found on the CD-ROM enclosed in the booklet and can also be accessed at:
