FP5 Unit:Computing, Communications and Networks
With the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) the Unit E1 developed further on.
The IST Unit E1 has migrated under FP6 mainly into:
Unit C3: Embedded systems (8 Project officers)
and partly to:
Unit D1: Communication and Network Technologies (3 Project officers)
Unit D2: Networked Audiovisual Systems (1 Project officer)
Details can be found on
Unit C3 (FP6): Welcome to the new Unit Embedded Systems (FP6)
For any expert or organisation interested in the activities of Unit C3 (Embedded systems), please contact (email removed) .
Experts (reviewers, evaluators, etc...) are advised to
if they wish to be considered for future activities in this domain of the IST programme.
If you wish to contact us, visit our list of
concertation meeting of October 22nd 2002
, we plan an information day in Brussels to present the details of the Embedded system area and the
for Embedded systems (expected deadline for this call: October 2003). More details will follow.
Interesting embedded literature can be found on internet:

Old Unit E1 (FP5)
The mission of the Unit is to foster development and convergence of technologies related to information processing, communication and networking systems as well as promoting the adoption of these technologies.
Focusing on technologies and tools for distributed systems, real-time, embedded and advanced control systems, broadband communication networks, interoperability of networks and network management.
- Distributed systems and services provision: to develop environments to support distributed applications;
- Embedded systems: design and implementation of data- and/or compute-intensive real-time applications; emphasis on hard real-time (safety critical) and Advanced Control Systems
- Network integration, interoperability and interworking: to provide broadband services to the end user;
- Terabit core networks: to develop all-optical core/metropolitan networks; and
- Take-up measures: to accelerate the take-up of enabling technologies which form the foundations of the information society.
- RTD projects
- Project clusters, Networks and Dissemination Measures
- International Co-operation (USA, Korea)
- Follow-up of standardisation activities
- Co-operation with other domains and units
