Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Telecommunication now underpins most industrial activities and is central to the performance of the service sector in Europe. The objective of the RACE programme, which was launched in 1985, is to promote the competitiveness of the Community's telecommunications industry, operators and service providers. This in turn should provide the final users, at minimum cost and with minimum delay, with services that will sustain the competitiveness of the European economy and contribute to the maintenance and creation of employment in the Community. The aim of this publication is to report on the performance and results of the RACE programme. The context and organisation of the programme are described, together with the evaluation and auditing involved. Links with other EC and European actions are presented and future requirements and options for research in this field are also discussed.
