May 20, 2004

Brussels, 19th May 2004

The Council welcomed the Commission's proposals in this field, aiming at facilitating entry and movement of researchers from non-EU countries in the EU. The Presidency expressed its intention of forwarding the remarks made by the Competitiveness Council to the Justice and Home Affairs Council of Ministers. The Council addressed inter alia the issue of host organisations, welcoming researchers in the EU, with a view to avoiding additional and needless bureaucratic procedures for such organisations.
