The European Commission has now published detailed rules on the rules for participation in nuclear research activities under the Fifth Euratom Framework Programme. These add more detail to the general rules adopted by the Council alongside the Framework Programme in December 1998.

These rules set out the general provisions for participants in the programme including rules for the different types of project in which research institutes, research centres, and universities can participate in under the Programme. In particular this covers the number of independent partners required for each type of project. The legislation explains how the Community's financial participation in projects is allocated and paid, as well as how and when participants may charge for eligible costs. Finally, it covers the rules for auditing Community expenditure.

The Regulation entered into force on 26 July 1999, and will apply to all projects funded under the Fifth Euratom Framework Programme.

The corresponding legislation for the European Community's Fifth Framework Programme (1998-2002) - i.e. research in areas other than nuclear energy -was published earlier this year in the Official Journal (OJ No L 122 of 12.5.1999, p. 9), and entered into force on 15 May 1999. This Regulation gives detailed rules for participation in FP5, as well as for the dissemination of research results, covering, for example:

- The number of independent partners required for different types of projects;
- Rules for Community financial participation and eligible costs;
- The dissemination, ownership, protection and use of knowledge;
- The technological implementation plan (TIP).
