ESPRIT (European Specific Programme for Research and development in Information Technology) was set up in 1984 as a cooperative research programme involving European IT companies, large and small, and academic institutions. Its aim is to contribute to the development of a competitive industrial base in an area of crucial importance to the entire European economy. This book gives an overview of the work carried out in the basic research area of the ESPRIT programme at October 1991. Each project, action, working group and network is described in a standard format covering its aims, approach and methods, progress and results, potential impact, latest publications and information dissemination activities. In each case details of participating organisations are provided, together with a contact point.
