About IST

European research activities are structured around consecutive programmes, or so-called Framework Programmes. The Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) set out the priorities - including the IST Priority - for the EU's research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) activities for the period 2002-2006.

These priorities were identified on the basis of a set of common criteria reflecting the major concerns of increasing industrial competitiveness and the quality of life for European citizens in a global information society.

For more detailed information about specific IST activities, visit the IST Activities page on this site.

The proposals for FP7 (2007-2013) await approval and adoption by the European Parliament and Council
