As part of a new series of books on Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA), the publishers of the International Journal of Life-Cycle Assessment have recently produced a first volume containing the results of the LCANET concerted action - the European Network for Strategic Life-Cycle Assessment Research and Development - supported by the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of Environment and Climate.

The aims of the LCANET concerted action were:

- To support the formation of a European network in the field of LCA, providing a forum for interaction between academia, industry and government;
- To describe the state-of-the-art in LCA methodology;
- To provide input to the Environment and Climate programme, with particular emphasis on environmental technologies.

LCANET identified priority areas aimed at developing a strategic LCA research programme, including elements needed to employ LCA effectively as a policy support tool and as a "driving force" for technological development in the field of environmental technologies.
