Abstract: Networks of collaboration have been set up within the European Union's Fourth Framework Programme (FP4) by applying co-occurrence analysis and visualisation in two-dimensional knowledge maps. The focus of the analysis is on the patterns of co-operation and collaboration in research networks within FP4, involving the industrial, research and education sectors of all EU-Member States. The aggregate situation of FP4, and the Transport Research Programme in particular, are examined to identify features within patterns of co-operation of relevance to European research. The methodology is summarised, and potential for future research evaluation within the European Research Area is assessed. Copyright , Beech Tree Publishing.
