Life sciences, genomics and biotechnology for health: On cancer research that the research strategy must be patient-oriented. An approach is required which, taking genomics as the basis, leads to improvements in clinical practice and human health.

Information Society technologies: developing mobile, wireless, optical and broadband communication infrastructures and computing technologies that are reliable, pervasive and can be adapted to accommodate new applications and services.

Nanotechnologies: emphasis is placed on applications, such as medical, environmental and food analysis systems.

Aeronautics and space: the competitiveness of the European commerical aircraft industry should be improved and there should be more research into science and study of the solar system.

Food quality and safety: emphasis is placed on the effectiveness of controls and harmonisation of procedures.

Sustainable development, global change and ecosystems: research into the impact of climate change on fish stocks should be included.

Citizens and governance in a knowledge-based society: the priority should be Europe's cultural heritage.
