Shaping Future FET Proactive Initiatives - Reports Brainstorming events - Expert Consultations - Written contributions to help shape the work programme for 2011-2012 (and beyond)

The Commission has launched a series of brainstorming events with high-level scientists from relevant fields
to help shape the work programme for 2011-2012 (and beyond) .

Participants were invited to share their views on research into future and emerging technologies for ICT. More specifically, they were asked to present ideas and opportunities that aim at going beyond traditional lines of ICT research. In this respect, the experts assisted the Commission in identifying potential strategic research areas and presented novel opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration across different scientific communities.

The outcome of these brainstorming events, which is collected in the REPORTS available from this page,
will serve as input to the topical calls for research proposals that are to be launched in 2011-2012 (and later on).
