RD Programme
The R&D proposals were evaluated by the Detector Research and Development Committee (DRDC) (1990-1995). Their recommendations were transmitted to the Research Board (RB) by the chairperson for the final decisions. It held its last meeting in January 1995, and its role was taken over by the LHC Committee (LHCC).
