REPORT on the amended proposal for a Council decision concerning the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities in the implementation of the framework programme 2002-2006 of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) (COM(2001) 823 oe C5-0236/2002 oe 2001/03(CNS)) Full Text

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

The same rules should apply to participation in Euratom activities as to participation in EC activities, which is why the amendments proposed here are the same as those drafted to the rules on participation in the Sixth European Community Framework Programme. The only new amendments are those relating to fusion research.

In Chapter III rules are set out which apply to RTDT activities under the priority thematic area "Fusion Energy Research`. For the implementation of the activities a number of legal frameworks are foreseen, taking into account the strong integration of fusion research in the Member States and world-wide.

Concerning the Community financial contribution, concerns have been expressed to the rapporteur by the Consultative Committee for the Euratom specific research and training programme in the field of nuclear energy (Fusion), CCE-FU. According to CCE-FU, which represents all the Associations working on fusion at EU level, the Community should provide a general support to the Associations within the integrated European fusion programme, at a rate as close as possible to 25% (as it was under FP5), in order to maintain an adequate level of fusion work in the Associations, as recommended by the European Parliament in its resolution on the Euratom FP6. The reduction in the fusion budget in FP6 with respect to FP5 implies that a rate close to 25% (23% is a reasonable figure) can be guaranteed only if preferential support (45% under FP5) is concentrated on few actions of direct relevance to ITRE.
