Information and communications technologies (ICT) programmes under the Fourth RTD Framework Programme (FP4), which ran from 1994-1998, were implemented under three core programme activities - ACTS, Esprit and Telematics Applications (TAPS). Under the Fifth Framework Programme (FP5: 1998-2002), these three programmes evolved into the IST Programme - a single and integrated programme reflecting the convergence of information processing, communications and media.
