Abstract

The purpose of this guidance note is to identify those research topics which were either poorly covered by the first call or neglected completely, and to place these topics in the originally intended policy context. Since the response to the first call differed across the Work Programme areas there are inevitably some differences in the way in which the focusing, which is being proposed for the second call, is described in this note.

Areas and subareas considered in the second call:

- AREA I: Evaluation of science and technology (S&T) policy options in Europe:
. Subarea I.1.Analysis of the RTD situation in Europe in the world context;
. Subarea I.2. Evaluation of the interrelations between short- and medium-term needs socio-economic changes and new scientific and technological developments;
. Subarea I.3.Methods, tools and approaches relevant to the preparation, monitoring and evaluation of science and technology policies

- AREA II: Research on education and training (E&T):
. Subarea II.1. Effectiveness of policies and actions, European dimension and diversity;
. Subarea II.2.Methods, tools and technologies: quality and innovation in education and training;
. Subarea II.3. Education, training and economic development;

- AREA III: Research into social integration and social exclusion in Europe:
. Subarea III.2. Causes of social exclusion, particularly unemployment;
. Subarea III.4. Evaluation of the impact of social integration policies;
. Subarea III.5. Horizontal activities and development of research infrastructures.

Proposals addressing issues cutting across two or more of the areas I, II and III will be given appropriate attention.
