Cooperation in science and technology, overview of the aActivities in the domain of telecommunications information science and technology (TIST)

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

COST-TIST covers all COST research activities in the field of Telecommunications and Information technologies, services and applications. COST Actions in this area have successfully contributed to the aims of the European Research Area by bringing a large set of national, industrial and university research activities in the field together into a common framework of research objectives.
These Actions have also assisted in extending the scientific cooperation to all the COST member states and in some cases globally, which is a true evidence of the usefulness and complementarity of COS There have been many contributions from COST to both technology standards, new products and services and this trend is continuing and growing. In addition to the fundamental contribution to science and technology, COST-TIST activities have been instrumental in bringing together scientists with entrepreneurial spirit who started successful companies in Europe on the frontiers of modern technology.
This highly dynamic field is increasingly underpinning the competitiveness of Europe in the global digital and knowledge based economy and the associated Information Society. It is therefore essential to maintain a coherent long term research effort in order to ensure that Europe has a sufficient base of new knowledge and human potential to sustain the future evolution.
