The present note sets out the boundary conditions to be met by potential Article 169 initiatives as well as the process that will guide their implementation. Article 169 of the Treaty provides a legal basis for the Community to support the integration of national research programmes by means of a participation in research and development programmes undertaken by several Member States.
