FP6-IST projects & cluster results

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

We are living a very exciting moment, as we are kicking off 46 new projects funded under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) and we are very looking forward to the promises that these projects will deliver, in the area of Future Internet Technologies, Ubiquitous Radio Access and Spectrum Management, and Converged Infrastructure Technologies.
Nevertheless, one shall not forget that European Research Framework Programmes are a public policy instrument to strengthen European competitiveness through cooperation with a fixed timeframe, determined research themes and specific expected impact. However in the background there is undoubtedly a research continuum.
Under the 6th Framework Programme (FP6), the European Union has been funding collaborative research and development activities in the field of telecommunications with a financial allocation of over EUR 370 millions, and the objective to make significant progress towards advanced communication technologies, systems and services.
As 65% of our FP6 projects were ended at the end of 2007, our last Concertation meeting which took place in September was an excellent opportunity to take a step back and look at what has actually been achieved so far in terms of impact through FP6 projects.
