To date, a total of 90 proposals have been selected for Community support following the July 1992 call made under AIR, the specific programme for RTD and demonstration actions in the field of agriculture and agro-industry including fisheries, 1990-1994. The Community budget available for project funding under this call totals ECU 130 million. A second round of the decision process, scheduled for the latter half of 1993, involves some 35 additional projects. A further round of selection is planned for 1994. A third call for proposals was to be launched in July 1992 but has been delayed following the implementation of the new rules, issued by Commission Vice-President Ruberti, governing publication of RTD calls. It is now possible that the AIR call for proposals will be published on the 15 September 1993, with a deadline fixed either at 17 November 1993 or at an unspecified date in January 1994.
