    Abstract

    One of the important conclusions from the Materials Database Demonstrator Programme of the Commission of the European Communities was that the data available from the first generation of on-line databases in the Programme was regarded, by evaluation panels with a broad range of material interests, as having low value. If a self-sustaining market in materials information in the European Communities is to be established, then the data available should have a recognised value as being what the customer needs and can use. Information destined for the market should therefore be engineered for its intended purpose and its value ensured by this process. This concept is the basis of proposals for a new programme for materials information within the European Communities and the background to the concept of information of value and an outline of the proposals for the new programme is given.
