"Euroabstracts" is published each month by DG XIII of the European Commission. It provides abstracts of Community RTD publications in addition to a review of RTD results, policies and activities. The April 1995 issue presents a profile of EU research programmes in the field of agriculture and fisheries, including agro-industries, food technologies, forestry, aquaculture and rural development. The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) celebrated its 20th anniversary in 1994. An article by John Tooze, the Laboratory's Associate Director, presents some personal reflections on the last 20 years. In addition, an article examines the Europrospective initiative which aims to address the major social and economic development issues facing Europe. A section on new publications includes reviews on "Support for new technology-based firms", "Research trends in the field of environmental analysis", as well book reviews on steel research and AIDS research. The April edition includes some 40 pages of abstracts of recent Community publications on research, science and technology. These cover a wide range of subjects: chemistry, earth sciences, engineering and technology, energy, life sciences, materials, mathematics, computers and telecommunications, nuclear science and engineering, and physics.
