The completion of the European internal market in 1992 and the challenge from Japanese industry has stimulated growing interest in government funding of European collaboration in advanced technology. This book examines European collaboration in detail. The various approaches to implementing government funding are discussed, as well as providing an overview on the justifications for such funding. A number of previous and current projects aimed at European collaboration are examined, focusing on those issues which distinguish them from national projects. Examples are given by reviewing schemes such as AIRBUS, ARIANE, ESPRIT, EUREKA and TORNADO. The European communication satellite programme is analyzed, giving special attention to the development of projects such as OTS/ECS, OLYMPUS and TV-SAT/TDF. Also included is an extensive bibliography, tables and a keyword index. The thorough overview of the subject-matter, as well as the wealth of empirical information will be of considerable interest to all those involved in the study of European collaboration.
