Following the ratification of the Treaty on the European THE FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME IV
Union (EU) all Community activities in the field of research,
(1994-1998)
technological development and demonstration are covered
TASK FORCES
by the European Community (EC) Framework Programme
for Research and Technological Development (RTD).
On 26 April 1994, Framework Programme IV was adopted.
It has a duration of 5 years (1994-1998) and a budget of
I3.I billion ECU (to which an amount of 0.7 billion might
be added in 1996).
Framework Programme IV contains 4 activities and a number
of specific RTD programmes which cover the areas listed
below.
In addition to these activities and in order to tailor research
to public concerns, 8 Research-Industry Task Forces were
created in 1995. The initiative is designed to encourage the
development of technologies which help both to improve
the quality of life in Europe and to increase our industrial
competitiveness. For more information, see Annex 1.
