By establishing the new European Research Forum (ERF) (Commission Decision 98/611/EC/Euratom of October 23, 1998) the Commission stressed the need for streamlining the previous high level consultation instruments of ESTA and IRDAC into a single body with two chambers (academic and scientific on the one hand, industrial services and users chamber on the other. Thus the former ESTA and IRDAC instruments have been superseded.

Information given below refers purely to former ESTA activities. Interested parties should check the following link for information of the activities of the European Research Forum.

The European Science and Technology Assembly (ESTA) was established in March 1994 as an advisory body for science and technology to assist the European Commission with the implementation of the European Union's research and development policy.
