During the first half of the nineteen seventies leading European scientists in polar glaciology planned a common European research programme in Antarctica. The project could finally not be realised, mainly due to financial reasons. However, the discussions and especially the suggested programme are interesting, because not only classical glaciological projects have been suggested but also attempts have been made to obtain answers concerning global climatic and environmental change. This report summarises the discussions and conclusions based on the minutes of the various meetings and the suggested science plan. The planning meetings were held with the support and under the umbrella of the Council of Europe. The Committee of Ministers had finally to decide about a realisation of the project. Therefore, also discussions and reactions of the meetings of ministers’ deputies are reported.
