Funded under: FP6-IST


The Fifth Framework Programme for Research, Development and Demonstration (FP5, 1998-2002, allocated funds: EUR 14.96 billion), was approved by the European Parliament and the European Council in 1998.
FP5 had a multi-theme structure, consisting of seven Specific Programmes, of which four are Thematic Programmes:
- Quality of Life and management of living resources;
- User-friendly information society (IST Programme);
- Competitive and sustainable growth;
- Energy, environment and sustainable development.
Within FP5, the IST Programme focused on research and development activities targeted at �societal problems and needs�. The objective was to realise the benefits of the information society for Europe both by accelerating its emergence and by ensuring that the needs of individuals and enterprises are met. The programme�s inter-related research objectives focused both the technology developments of the information society and enabled the close articulation between research and policy needed for a coherent and inclusive information society.
