A conference on the new industrial technologies programme under the Fourth Framework programme (1994-1998) will take place in London on 14 June 1994.

The conference is being organized by Institute of European Trade and Technology (IETT). Dr. Nicholas Hartley of DG XII of the European Commission will address the conference which will provide a detailed explanation of the next industrial technologies programme, as well as its structure and procedures.

The conference will also discuss the results of the BRITE/EURAM programme under the Third Framework Programme. The aim will be to exchange information and highlight any areas where improvements can be made to the running both of the future programme and of individual projects. Relationships with other programmes and initiatives such as CRAFT will be explored as well as the relationship with near-market programmes such as EUREKA. The conference will look at examples of specific project management experience and in particular new procedures, contractual points and success factors.

The new industrial technologies programme will give a boost to a broad range of industrial activities, help strengthen cooperation on a European scale and make RTD effort cost-effective. Acting alongside national activities and business, it will strive to stimulate industry's capacity to produce new products and processes competitively. This will be achieved through the development of critical generic technologies.

Under the programme, the Commission will look for transnational, multidisciplinary and multisectoral projects which involve suppliers, manufacturers, end users, universities and research centres. It will encourage thematic networks of excellence, synergy with EUREKA and participation of SMEs. The efficacy of research will also be increased through the clustering of projects.

The conference is intended to inform researchers, universities, public and private research organisations, technical directors, project leaders of European collaborative programmes, financial managers, R&D specialists, consultants and advisers.
