Lexical analysis

A "tag cloud" analysis was executed for most of the inputs described above. Results are described in this page (click).

The process

For 2011-12 one very significant novelty, directly related to Objective 1.2, is the emergence of the Future Internet Public-Private Partnership (PPP); it is described in detail in this press release .

External inputs are coming from contacts with scientific community, and come in the form of public consultations, workshops and meetings, white papers and reports.

The first phase of the process for Objective 1.2 can be summarized in the following schema:


In the second phase, the orientations for different research objectives are merged together to create the final text of the workprogramme:
