The window is intended to ensure that the work carried out in ACTS is timely and relevant. It ensures that ACTS participants keep an up-to-date view of the development of the market and its needs, and simultaneously it ensures visibility of the work carried out within ACTS.
To maximize the synergy to be obtained by carrying out the research and development of ACTS within the overall framework of a collaborative programme, the InfoWin project provides support for the internal communication of the ACTS programme, both within the projects and between projects and the Commission.
The basis for InfoWin is a combination of electronic and human means. Electronic, because we are in the information age. Human, because, in the quest for information, nothing replaces the expertise of a group of people.
The project therefore is structured around information and marketing, editorial and dissemination, on-line as well as through other means.
The on-line services support the on-line information dissemination as well as helping projects communicate via forums, setting up support for PGP, etc.
To ensure European coverage of information gathering and of marketing regional representatives have been appointed. The regional representatives are mostly representatives from the National Hosts.
Europe has been divided into 9 regions each covered by one or more regional representatives responsible for promoting the activities of ACTS and for gathering information on relevant results and activities.

Other ServicesInfoWin supports the general information flow within projects and within chains and domains by offering a number of services. Among these are:
The InfoWin Public Key Server (now closed) provides a database of public PGP-keys.
InfoWin maintains a database of public PGP-keys. Members of the ACTS community can register their keys and obtain the public keys of others.
By maximizing the impact of the work of ACTS, InfoWin supports the development of the information society in Europe and on a global scale.
InfoWin also supports the dissemination of advanced communications concepts and services into all the regions of Europe, ensuring that the benefits can be felt throughout the community, such as in the introduction of teleworking in peripheral regions as well as in the development of high-speed infrastructure in the core regions
