The European Commission's Car of Tomorrow task force has published its first newsletter, aimed at all those who wish to be kept informed of, or participate in, the task force's activities. The newsletter contains details of recent work undertaken in the task force, and advance notice of planned activities, including the dates of relevant calls for proposals under Community RTD programmes. In addition, it contains brief news articles on developments and events within the motor industry which are likely to be of interest in the context of the task force. A listing of forthcoming events in the motor industry is also included. The newsletter is currently available in English and French, with future editions expected in German.
