The European Commission, DG XII, has published a list of publications which were prepared under the first two phases of the FAST programme (1978-1987) and the third phase of the FAST (MONITOR) programme (1989-1993). These programmes concerned the forecasting and assessment of science and technology for the period 1978-1993. The objective of the programmes was to analyse scientific and technological changes in order to highlight their long-term implications and consequences for the EU research and development initiatives. The work of the FAST programme was continued by the MONITOR programme which, in addition to the work carried out by FAST, identified new directions and priorities for Community RTD. The publications which have now become available include books, occasional papers, exploratory dossiers and strategic dossiers.
