The VALUE Relay Centre (VRC) Network will hold an annual meeting in Brussels on 21-23 September 1994.

The event will be divided into two sections. The first will concern the "Exchange of good practice" and the second will present two of the specific programmes of the Fourth Framework programme.

The "Exchange of good practice" will focus on upstream activities such as the partner search, information on the specific programmes, as well as specific advice to potential candidates on how to approach participation in Community-funded RTD projects. The session will present the experiences of a number of VRCs from both the EU States and the EFTA countries.

In addition, a downstream session will detail what information is available and how it can be accessed. The Commission has developed a number of actions aimed specifically at the exploitation of results and technology transfer. The session will demonstrate how to best take advantage of the available information on results.

On the subject of the specific programmes of the Fourth Framework programme, the meeting will look at the achievements to date of the VRCs in the BRITE/EURAM programme and will examine the future of the Industrial Materials and Technologies programme and the Measurements and Testing programme under the Fourth Framework Programme. Future plans for the CRAFT initiative will.

There is plenty of scope for increased collaboration between the VRCs and programme management. The meeting will examine proposals in this area.
