Abstract

This 1996 Work Programme establishes the work schedule of the specific programme for research and technological development activities, including demonstration, in the field of information technologies (1994-1998) and sets out in detail the various activities to be pursued during its lifetime. On the basis of this Work Programme periodic calls for proposals are launched inviting interested organizations to present project proposals.

To reflect the dynamic nature of information technologies, the ESPRIT Work Programme is implemented as a rolling plan which is revised yearly in the light of evolving needs and on the basis of consultation. The actions through which the programme will be implemented are now grouped under two different headings; R&D Themes and Preparatory, Support and Transfer Activities

The programme includes a number of focused clusters in which a group of RTD projects and related preparatory support and transfer activities are bound together by a common well-defined industrial goal. Focused clusters cover the areas of the Open Microprocessor System Initiative, High Performance Computing and Networking, Technologies for Business Processes, and Integration in Manufacturing. Other domains of research include Software Technologies, Technologies for Components and Subsystems, Multimedia Systems and Long-Term Research.
