July 21, 2004

Brussels, 20 Jul 2004

The Council heard a presentation by the Presidency of an initiative (11209/04 and 11476/04) concerning cooperation in the field of agriculture related research and agreed to have a new discussion on this matter at a forthcoming session in November.

Commissioners Busquin and Fischler also provided additional information on the existing legislative framework for agriculture-related research and on the various sectors of cooperation between Member States and stressed that research in that field aimed in particular at ensuring sustainable development of agriculture and improving the quality and safety of food products.

The Presidency indicated its intention to send out rapidly a questionnaire to delegations, whose results will be used at the November session, mostly concerning the analysis of the situation in agriculture-related research, the need for cooperation and the definition of the areas of agricultural research to be targeted by such cooperation.
