Each country in it has its scientific traditions, its strengths and its specific features. Researchers obviously had no need to wait for the Union to become involved in joint projects or take their place in interna- tional networks. Since the start of the 1980s, however, the European Union's framework programmes have been the driving force of a new collaborative approach and helped to create a Europe of research. They are based on the priorities which emerged from broad consultation of the political authorities responsible, the scientific world, industrialists, and user representatives. They targeted projects catering for the needs of a changing society and their budget has been increased as a function of the tasks and objectives involved. The aim of these programmes is to pro- mote cooperation between partners in different countries by funding transnational work and promoting coordination between scientific and technological facilities
