2000 Workprogramme: Information Society Technologies. A programme of Research, Technology Development & Demonstration under the 5th Framework of European Research

Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

This work programme establishes the work schedule of the specific programme for research and technological development activities, including demonstration, in the field of "Promoting a User-Friendly Information Society" 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 organisations to submit project proposals.

The Work Programme 2000 is focussed on the challenges of realising its main objectives from various perspectives, including technology and applications as well as policy issues. The priorities for 2000 are:

- To improve natural and personalised interactions with IST applications and services. This includes multi-lingual/multi-modal interaction systems that are adaptable to the user�s preferences and lifestyle (e.g. sensitivity to gender, age and culture).
- To foster the development and convergence of networking infrastructures and architectures including the integration of fixed,mobile,on-line and broadcasting technologies.
- To develop embedded technologies, their interconnections and their full integration into the service infrastructure, the workplace and business processes.
- To develop applications and services that take advantage of such systems.
- To reconsider service provisioning in the context of any-where/any-time access to services and ambient dialogue modes including public services and, mediation and commercial transaction systems.
- To improve the openness of software and systems.
- To improve the tools and methodologies that enable creativity in content production and presentation, in the context of converging access and delivery systems.
- To emphasise trust and confidence as a general requirement for all technologies, applications and services.
