On 27 July 1994 the Council adopted the specific programme on industrial and materials technolo(BRITE/EURAM III) (1994-1998). To provide those interested with sufficient time to prepare proposals, the Commission, DG XII, has now published a provisional information package and work programme for BRITE/EURAM III.

The information package examines in detail the procedure for the submission of proposals, while the work programme includes the programme's scientific and technological aims and areas of research work, targeted research actions and practical information on calls for proposals.

The aim of the programme is to contribute to a strengthening of the competitiveness of European industry through concentrated and targeted RTD actions on priority industrial objectives.

The guide to the work programme is presented in two sections:

- Detailed objectives and research work;
- Implementation for calls for proposals, including modalities, and financial, managerial, coordinative and exploitation arrangements.

The work programme is equally applicable to all industries, materials, processes and products and is intended to facilitate the rapid use of results and the active participation of all partners, in particular SMEs. It is defined according to short-, medium- and long-term industrial objectives rather than according to technological fields, as follows:

- In the short term, priority will be given to research that makes it possible to adapt existing technologies, or to develop new industrial technologies, which produce a competitive leverage, in particular for the competitiveness of sectors with a lower technological level;

- In the medium term, research will be concentrated on industries which are already developing innovative technologies and strategies, making is possible to strengthen their competitiveness as well as making better use of human resources;

- In the long term, research will concentrate on strategic technologies, which are more fundamental and high risk, for the production and design of products likely to enable the creation of new industries or markets in a context of future sustainable growth.

The research areas of the work programme are as follows:

- Production technologies;
- Materials and technologies for product innovation;
- Technologies for transport means, including:
. Aeronautics technologies;
. Technologies for surface transport means.

The work programme and information package have a provisional character until the official call for proposals on 15 December 1994.
