External monitoring of the Information Society Technologies (IST) specific programme for 2002 - Report

Funded under: FP5-IST


This Report is part of the series of annual monitoring reports prepared for the EC Framework Programme and the Euratom Framework Programme and their constituent Specific Programmes as well as for European Research Area (ERA) related activities. A revised programme monitoring scheme was introduced in 2001 based on the system launched in 1995 which involved independent external experts in the monitoring activities. The new mechanism aims at a better synergy between the monitoring of the ERA and specific programmes and of the Framework Programme.

This is the fourth and final report covering the IST Programme in the Fifth Framework Programme; the report also highlights progress in implementation of the ERA, the launch of the Sixth Framework Programme, and the results and impact of previous Framework Programmes. The report should help reinforce establishment of best practices and identify the scope for further improvements in implementation of policy and the programmes.

The report consists of two parts:
Part A: External monitoring report prepared by independent external experts:
Part B: Responses of the Programme management to the external monitoring report.
