The European Commission has published a report on Thematic Networks, entitled "A road to European co-operation".

With some of the technical areas of the Industrial and Materials Technologies (IMT) Programme being absorbed into the thematic programme "Competitive and Sustainable Growth" under the European Union's Fifth Framework Programme (FP5) for Research, Technological Demonstration (RTD), the information available in the publication is intended to help potential participants. The Thematic Networks Initiative of the IMT Programme (BRITE/EURAM III) was launched under the European Commission's Fourth Framework Programme (1994-1998).

It set out to provide coordination between industry, universities and research institutes working separately on industrially-relevant research and technological development.

"A road to European co-operation" summaries the outcome of this activity three years from its implementation and highlights the networks which have been created. Additionally, it takes a closer look at the general trends in initiative build up and industrial sector coverage as well as Member State and third-country participation.

Individual synopses are presented of all the 100 thematic networks operational at present or in the final stages of preparation.
