On 7-8 July 1994 the European Commission held a meeting in Bratislava to discuss future scientific and technological cooperation with the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The Commission asked each of the participating countries to identify its priority areas of action for future cooperation under the Community's Fourth Framework Programme. Hungary's national priorities for cooperation are as follows: - Deposition of nuclear wastes; - Development of geographic information systems (GIS); - Food processing; - Automobile industry suppliers; - Development of agricultural machinery. Hungary also proposes the following regional projects: - Application of GIS to the Danube Basin; - Establishment of VALUE Relay Centres or related information centres for distribution of information concerning EU programmes. This is already part of the Hungarian national innovation programme.
