The TELEMATICS applications programme is a user driven research programme, focusing on the applications of information and/or communications technologies to society.
Its activities are closely related to those of the Information Technologies programme and the programme for Advanced Communications Technologies and Services. Together these three programmes are providing the building blocks for Europe's Information Society. Their joint budget represents 28% of the European Union's research budget, a reflection of the high significance and expected impact of these technologies.
These activities are also relevant to a range of other European policies in fields such as transport, health, education, etc. The various areas and sectors of the TELEMATICS applications programme are ensuring that their work is carried out in consultation with these programmes and initiatives.
