The European Association of Contract Research Organizations (EACRO) has produced a European Technology Directory, listing its 50 member organizations. The compilation of the Directory was supported by DG XIII of the European Commission, in the framework of its SPRINT programme for innovation and technology transfer. The Directory is designed to help companies locate specialists in the technologies they require. It contains an entry on each of its member organizations, listing their research fields and areas of technical expertise, as well as practical information and key persons to contact. A 15-page index of research fields allows companies to swiftly locate organizations with the relevant expertise. The information contained in the Directory is also available on diskette as the EACRO European Technology Database, providing instant access to specialists and a rapid text-based search facility.
