About the IST Advisory Group (ISTAG)
The ISTAG has been set up to advise the Commission on the overall strategy to be followed in carrying out the IST thematic priority under the European framework programme for research.
The ISTAG reflects and advises on the definition and implementation of a coherent policy for research in ICT in Europe. This policy should ensure the mastering of technology and its applications, and should help strengthen industrial competitiveness and address the main European societal challenges.
It is through such an exercise that recommendations on priorities and activities of Community-funded research in ICT would be made.
ISTAG is supported by the DG INFSO / C2 unit.
