The European Commission, DG XIII, has published an invitation for tender for the completion of feasibility studies in the domain of Euro-ISDN for 1995. In the context of the definition of the Commission's telecommunications policy for the development of the information society, three aspects are seen as being of major importance: - The potential large role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for developing a large market for the new services and applications; - The role of intelligent networks in the development of trans-European networks (TENs); - The monitoring of the development of Union-wide generic telematic services. The invitation to tender consists of three feasibility studies relating to the aspects mentioned above. More detail is provided below: - The potential of the SME market for the new telecommunications services: This study aims at assessing the weight of the SME market as a leading edge market for new services and applications. Common requirements for SMEs will be analysed and the cost for the European SMEs sector in telecommunications will be evaluated; - The role of intelligent networks in the development of TENs: Taking full account of the study on the application of ONP principles to intelligent network functions, this study will identify the current market regarding intelligent networks; - The development of generic services in the European Union: status and trends: This study aims at creating a methodology for monitoring the development of the market for European-based generic services.
