Outlook for 1999

This Chapter:

Implementation of the 5th Framework Programme

Monitoring of the Framework Programme and strategic reflexion

The biggest challenge this year is successful launching of the new Framework Programme, from publication of the calls for proposals in March to signature of the first contracts, scheduled in autumn 1999. The German Presidency, followed by the Finnish, have both put implementation of the Framework Programme at the top of their priorities in the research field, but without neglecting preparation for the future. Accordingly, at the Council meeting on research on 20 May the German Presidency will start an in-depth debate on the future of European research.
