This annual publication of the IST Thematic Priority presents an overview of the programme's activities and achievements. It describes technical challenges and policy issues addressed by the work programme and highlights some of the recent RTD projects and results. The transition from the Fifth to the Sixth Framework Programmes and the linkages between research activities and other EU policies are also described. The presentations focus on the use of IST within three key settings: by individuals and in personal spaces; by enterprises and in the workplace; and by public services and society at large. A fourth section covers enabling technologies which underpin future services and applications across these scenarios. Covering IST development from many different perspectives, the book shows how IST research is contributing to a knowledge society for all. The book was written and edited by MS Consulting, Birmingham (GB), and published by the European Commission, DG Information Society (ISBN 92-894-5752-X).
