The document that can be downloaded here is one part of the SENSER report. This report describes the general results of the JOULE-SENSER project (Synergies between European and national strategies for energy RTD). This project was a follow-up to the JOULE-PANEL project, which reviewed national Energy R&D management in five European countries. The PANEL project recommended a full review for all European Member States, and was the starting point for the SENSER project. The objective of the project was: "... to provide a full review and comparison of energy RTD strategies in all the countries of the EU, and to analyse the synergies between the national and EU-level RTD programmes...". This was to be reached by: "... [assembling] a data and information base, and from this developing key indicators to advise EU policy-makers on the [four topics listed below]..."

For practical reasons, the work was divided into four topic areas, each relating to a specific aspect of the national management of non-nuclear energy RTD. These were:

- Evaluation and monitoring of RTD;
- Technology characterisation and foresight;
- Analysis of factors driving energy markets;
- Targets for EU intervention.
