Abstract

This is the publishable executive summary of BASE2, a research project funded under the Aeronautics and Space thematic priority of the Sixth Framework Programme. The scope of BASE2 was to look into the use of satellite telecommunications as a means to support key EU policies in the field of education.

This report provides first a brief overview of the project's scientific and technological objectives. These included the development of a broadband network infrastructure integrating wireless and satellite communications technologies and the provision of tele-education services to a large number of users.

By the end of the project, all the initial objectives had been achieved. Furthermore, the acceptance of tele-education services delivered to geographically isolated communities had been evaluated. All the main results of the BASE2 project are summarised in the second part of the report.
