FIVE YEAR ASSESSMENT REPORT RELATED TO THE SPECIFIC PROGRAMME: USER-FRIENDLY INFORMATION SOCIETY, 1995-1999

Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

The task of this Panel was to assess the activities now combined under the Specific Programme Competitive and Sustainable Growth and �to report in a systematic manner on the results and impacts achieved under FP3 and FP4.

The Panel considers that the general objectives of the programme are highly relevant, but a more systematic formulation of these objectives is recommended. While the Panel thinks that the variety of objectives is in principle useful, there might be, with the increasing scope, an increasingly difficult trade-off between the different objectives (scientific and technological excellence, industrial competitiveness, broader socio-economic goals, contribution to European cohesion, SME participation).
