PROSOMA unveils its latest developments at Online Information 99 in London. From 7 to 9 December 1999, PROSOMA will demonstrate, to information professionals as well as to potential investors, its newest features that assist those involved in the innovation process.

PROSOMA is an Internet and DVD-ROM based multimedia information service on results of European research projects in Information Society technologies (IST), sponsored by the IST programme of the European Union.

The launch of the new PROSOMA homepage marks its new image and brings the most recent features to the forefront. The introduction of a discussion forum provides an additional communication channel with the people responsible for the research results on display. An enhanced search function is now offered as well as links to partner websites which bring the user into closer contact with the organisations that initiated the results displayed. To increase the visibility and awareness of research results found in PROSOMA, success stories and press releases of results are highlighted and a spotlight is introduced for the 'Result of the Month'. These features and more can be found at http://www.prosoma.lu/.

PROSOMA now also provides European research results on a DVD-ROM. To assist with this migration, users still have the option of using the already existing CD-ROM product along with the DVD-ROM. This latest version of the PROSOMA CD/DVD-ROM also offers integration with the website, enabling users to receive the most complete and recent information without extra download time or costs. Users of course, still have the option of using it as a stand-alone product by browsing and searching the content of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM only.

Also available at Online Information 99 are PROSOMA's two most recent publications: 'Information Society technologies - challenges and opportunities' provides some 130 successful outcomes from European RTD projects, and 'Information Society technologies - successful EU-Eastern Europe Links' displays results arising from joint EU-CEEC projects. Those who are not present at Online Information 99 and would like to order a publication should contact the PROSOMA Helpdesk.

Bridging the Gap between research and the marketplace:

PROSOMA is a virtual trade fair of innovative ideas, a bridge between research and the marketplace. It provides current information on European research results in information and communications technologies. PROSOMA ensures that the various players involved in research, innovation and business have rapid access to innovative research results and gives them the possibility to contact directly the people behind these results.

Providing interactive multimedia presentations on the latest information about results using text, pictures, audio, video, animation, and software demonstrations, PROSOMA offers useful tools to gain momentum on innovation.
