from the executive summary, ". . .Problems common to scientists in virtually all eastern European countries include lack of access to scientific information from other countries (and sometimes their own country), and the need to establish the capability, through training and facility development, of pursuing state-of-the-art environmental measurements in their own waters. Collaboration with scientists from the United States on scientific projects of mutual interest was considered an appropriate step at this time to expedite information and technology exchange and to promote a fuller appreciation of the environmental and management problems and solutions which exist. Emphasis was placed on developing American-European collaborative projects for specific problems, in which priority scientific needs would be met. Most collaborative projects were designed to employ "transportable" techniques and protocols currently in wide use in the U.S. Attempts were made to design projects which would generate useful information in relatively short time periods (typically 2-4 years). . ."
