The European Commission, DG XII, has published a general information brochure on the specific programme for standards, measurements and testing under the Fourth Framework Programme. The aim of the standards, measurements and testing programme is to support the research necessary in order to establish the scientific and technical bases needed for the development of European standards and of a common measurement, testing and reference materials infrastructure. It has been allocated a budget of ECU 173 million for the period 1994-1998. The brochure examines the impact of the programme on industry, commerce and society, its technical spheres of intervention, the procedures governing participation in the programme, and an overview of Community achievements in the field of standards, measurements and testing.
