Applied IST research addressing major societal and economic challenges Products and services engineering 2010

Find the most recent information on EU Funding activities in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by visiting our ICT in FP7 website , which covers ICT in the 7 th Framework Programme (FP7) 2007 - 2013.


To strengthen further Europe's competitive position by developing collaborative technologies and methodologies for extended service and product development approaches, including associated services and distributed global manufacturing organisation. Community funding should help integrate, in a global context, fragmented European and international (e.g. IMS ) RTD efforts in product and process design, and to focus on new holistic product/service concepts.
