The Commission of the European Communities is inviting the submission of proposals for demonstration projects under its specific programme for research and technological development, including demonstration, in the field of non-nuclear energy (JOULE/THERMIE).

In conformity with Article 5.1 of the Council Decision adopting the specific programme, a work programme has been drawn up setting out the detailed scientific and technological objectives and types of actions to be undertaken, and the financial arrangements to be made for them. The objectives and the demonstration activities covered by this call for proposals relate to areas described in the work programme and include:

- Chapter 2: Rational Use of Energy (RUE), including:
. 2.1: RUE in buildings;

The Community's contribution to demonstration projects will not normally exceed 40% of the total eligible costs. As a general rule, demonstration projects should involve at least two non-affiliated partners from different Member States or from at least one Member State and one Associated State.
