The European Commission, DG XIII/E, has decided to harness the power of Internet to assist it in its mission to optimize information awareness and promote the use and exploitation of information products. A World Wide Web (WWW) server, I'M EUROPE, was set up for this purpose. WWW integrates hypermedia and networked information retrieval technologies to create a worldwide and dynamic information system. Documents in WWW are usually written in a structural and semantic language known as HTML, the Hypertext Markup Language. The language provides mechanisms for specifying the physical aspects of a document and its logical structure. HTML also offers facilities for specifying textual and/or iconic hypertext links to other documents on the web. I'M EUROPE, a World Wide Web server, was set up by DG XIII/E to provide up-to-date information on the European information market. The services currently offered by I'M EUROPE include: - Details of EU programmes in the field of the information market; - Instant access to the full texts of EU documents, such as the Maastricht Treat and the Bangemann report on the global information society; - On-line identification of partners for collaboration in projects, funded for example by the IMPACT programme. Interested organizations may use a specially designed interactive form to leave details of their activities and areas of interest; - Access to the 20 databases available on ECHO, including the nine CORDIS databases.
