III INTRODUCTION
The Permanent Inventory of AGricultural REsearch Projects (AGREP) is an information system on current projects
in agriculture and related fields in the Member States of the European Communities (Belgium, Denmark, Federal
Republic of Germany, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Portugal
and Spain). Its creation is based upon a regulation of the Council of Ministers of the European Communities concern­
ing the coordination of agricultural research (Council Regulation No 1728/74 of 27 June, 1974).
AGREP covers agriculture in an extensive sense of the word, i.e. including fields like fisheries and forestry, land use
and development, conservation of nature, veterinary medicine, food sciences and technology, as well as agricultural
economics and rural sociology. A detailed scope description is given in the subject classification facets "fields of
research" and "subject areas" as presented on the introductory pages of the two printed volumes.
The AGREP data base is fully computerized. It is available in printed form and on magnetic tape. Online access is
offered via public datatransmission networks. The database is updated quarterly.
The 1990 issue of AGREP contains about 26,000 title citations of agricultural research.
AGREP is a cooperative system. The national focal points (NFPs) collect input and provide it in an agreed format to
the Commission who sponsors the management of the system and the provision of output to the Member Countries.
Then is advised by the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) and its sub-group, the
AGREP Advisory Board. Data processing and technical assistance are carried out by a contractor to the Commission.
The AGREP publication consists of two parts:
Part I contains the Main List with the titles (both in original languages and in English) of the research projects,
complemented by some basic information on each project, i.e. name(s) of researcher(s), country and research organiz­
ation (in the Main List given as codes) and availability of publications.
Part II contains various indexes, i.e.
- a Subject Index which enables the identification of research projects relevant to a subject area.
- the List of Research Organizations sorted by country and within each country by hierarchic organization code (see
also Structure and use of the AGREP Main List, page X) The names of research organizations are completed by
postal address and referral number to those projects they are involved with.
- The List of Scientists contains the name(s) of the scientist(s)d in the research projects referred to.

V COVERAGE
In the table below is indicated the degree of coverage within the different subject areas as defined by the Standing
Committee for Agricultural Research (SCAR).
By coverage is meant the percentage of all current research projects on subject areas A­Η in a country, which arc
registered in AGREP. The figures should be viewed in conjunction with the notes following the table.
It should be noted, that the percentages are estimates and therefore subject to considerable uncertainty.

VI Notes regarding type of research organisation and financing in contributing countries.
Belgium
As f<it as possible all publicly financed research in relation to agriculture and executed in public and private institutions
is included in the AGREP coverage. For privately executed research particular in connection with industrial develop­
ment the coverage remains low.
The last updating included covers the projects identified as ongoing within the period from 31.12 1988 to 30.6.1990.
As the AGREP contribution has been taken out of the INVENT data base which is a part of the Permanent Inventory
of the Belgian Scientific and Technologic Potential, the most recent data or complementary information may be
obtained at the Science Policy Programmation Services, Rue de la Science, 8 ­ Β 1040 Bruxelles (telephone 32.2­
238 34 53).
Denmark
Mainly research carried out at public and semi­public institutions is included in AGREP.
Federal Republic of Germany
Research projects of public, semi­public and private institutions arc included in AGREP. The percentage of coverage
indicated relates mainly to public and semi­public organisations. For privately executed research the coverage is
considerably less.
On­line access is offered by DATACENTRALEN, Copenhagen and DIMDI, Cologne, the last one under copyright of
the Zentralstelle fur Agrardokumentation und ­information (ZADI).
France
The "Institut National de la Recherche Agronomiquc/INRA" which reports both to the Ministry of Research and the
Ministry of Agriculture is in charge of all research of interest to agriculture and the industries associated with
agriculture.
The research projects included in this publication cover the areas of expertise of the institute:
inventory of the resources concerning the physical environment and the study of their use
improvement of the animal and plant products of interest to agricultural economy, including those of forestry and
aquatic environments
conservation, production of food products from agricultural products and improvement of quality
biotechnology of interest to agriculture
­ production of energy by development of specific cultures or through the use of agricultural and industrial by­
products
­ protection, conservation and rational management of natural resources and rural areas
­ development of the social sciences in order to improve the understanding of the rural and agricultural world and Ín
order to improve the working conditions in agriculture.
The projects listed in this publication do not represent exactly the research carried out at INRA now since the last
updating of the data took place in 198ft.
If more recent data arc needed they may be obtained from INRA, 147, Rue de la Université ­ 75341 PARIS CEDEX
07, telephone: 33 (I) 42.75.90.00.
Ireland
Research projects earned out in the Government Departments, An Foras Taluntais and the Universities ­ whether
publicly financed research or done under contract for private industry or EEC is included in AGREP. It includes
Agriculture related h in the Agricultural, Verterinary, Food Science and Science faculties in the Universities.
Italy
The AGREP input for Italy is provided by Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR.) for the projects funded totally
or partially by itself and by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (M.A.F.) for all other publicly and privately
funded projects (institutes of the ministry, universities, corporate and public bodies).
1 C.N.R.
AGREP includes all the research projects funded by C.N.R., either intramural (research projects performed by
C.N R laboratories) or extramural research performed by public and private organisations. The percentages of
projects undertaken by these organisations are:
CNR 40%
Universities 51%
MAF 4%
Regions 1%
individuals and associations 4%
100%
A lot of research projects are organized in special research programs at national level such as:
VII Progetto Finalizzato Energetica
A special national project concerning alternative energy sources in agriculture co-funded by C. Ν. R. and Ε. Ν. E. ;
(National Agency for Alternative Energy).
Co-ordinated research groups on different production and disciplinary fields:
- milk production
- forage crops
- fast growing forest species
- irrigation
- pathology of horticultural plants
- enology
- livestock germplasm
- animal husbandry
- plant breeding
- food lipids
- virus and virus diseases
- biological pest management
- fruit trees germplasm.
- agricultural economics
2. M.A.F.
As far as the 105 institutes sending their research projects to M.A.F. are concerned, the distribution is as follows:
- Ministry of Agriculture 17.0%
-universities65.0%
-otherpublicadministrations3.4%
-regionals6.6%
-provincials0.7%
-self-governingpublicandprivate bodies7.3%
100.0%
The most important fields are:
- plant breeding
- storage and conservation
- animal breeding
- plant diseases and disease control
- soil science
- food processing.
On the whole the input of the Ministry registered 1,421 projects in 1987 which are
distributed as follows:
- Ministry of Agriculture 48.9 %
- universities 34.6%
- other public administrations 2.6%
- regional s 2.8%
- provincial s 1.7%
- self-governing public and private bodies 9.4%
100.0%
The present effort aims:
- to extend the coverage to other public and private bodies
- to give prominence to socio-economic and environmental research
- to review data concerning experimental and demonstration projects
- to collect data on the results of completed research projects.
