Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


In the last decade, major changes have occurred in informatics. In the future, desk-top supercomputers, direct satellite broadcasting, digital mobile radio-telephones, integrated broadband communications and other new applications of technologies will provide the means for low-cost, mobile, world-wide, high-performance communication on an unprecedented scale. The developments in communication are of special importance for the European Community since they provide the means to advance European cooperation and cohesion, while at the same time sustaining international competitiveness. The European Commission has been working together with the sector actors and national administrations in the definition and implementation of the actions which require or benefit from collaboration at the Community level. This report reviews the programmes that have been adopted by the European Commission on information and communications. Each programme is presented separately with a review of its current situation and results.
