Results of second call for proposals for Telematics programme: Telematics engineering

On 15 March 1995, the European Commission, DG XIII, published its second call for proposals for the specific RTD programme in the field of telematics applications of common interest (1994-1998) (OJ No C 64 of 15.3.1995, p. 12).

On 15 March 1995, the European Commission, DG XIII, published its second call for proposals for the specific RTD programme in the field of telematics applications of common interest (1994-1998) (OJ No C 64 of 15.3.1995, p. 12).

Partial results of this call for proposals are now available with regard to the "Telematics Engineering" sector of the programme. A total of 50 valid proposals were received in this sector and 11 have been retained for funding. The overall funding for these projects amounts to ECU 8.52 million.

The "Telematics Engineering" sector is a horizontal sector within the Telematics Applications programme. It is essentially concerned with the identification, collection, collation, adaptation, validation and diffusion of methods, techniques and tools regarding the best ways of successfully implementing telematics applications. It comprises tasks in five areas:

- Process re-engineering;
- Requirements specification engineering;
- Application engineering;
- Legal, ethical and socio-economic issues in telematics applications;
- Diffusion and feedback of telematics engineering results.

The 11 projects selected under this sector are:

- TELEFLOW: Support for value system redesign at the level of inter-company supply chain;

- MIRTI: Development of a proposal for a regulatory framework for industrial relations in telework;

- AESOPIAN: Method and tool for the self-assessment and consolidation of core competencies of organizations, including the application of best practices, in the development and operations of telematics systems and services;

- BABEL: Identification of cultural factors and inhibitors in the adoption of telematics by end-users, and development of a method for taking into account cultural values in the development and implementation of telematics systems and services;

- DAPRO: Structuration of the contents of the EU Data Protection Act on a CD-ROM and clarification of its relationship to existing national data protection rules (aimed at developers of telematics applications);

- DEDICA: Development of a gateway between EDIFACT and the X.509 standard for electronic mail, providing authentication certificates across the gateway;

- CoopWWW: Development of tools for group cooperation using the World Wide Web;

- MEGATAQ: Provision of practical guidelines and tools for the quality assessment, during validation, of user interfaces in telematics systems, and evaluation of these through the provision of support to selected Telematics Applications projects in different sectors;

- RESPECT: Provision of guidelines for the requirements engineering of telematics systems, starting from the user needs capture phase and ensuring quality through the whole development cycle, and validation of these guidelines through the provision of support to selected Telematics Applications projects in different sectors;

- FLUIDS: Development of reusable and general intelligent user interfaces to decision support systems;

- NECTAR: Operation of a WWW server where the public results of the Telematics Engineering sector are made available to the projects in the Telematics Applications programme, and more generally to industry, administrations and research institutions. Animation of an electronic forum for telematics engineering issues in the Telematics Applications community.

The projects are planned to be launched at the beginning of 1996.
