SCIMITAR is one of twelve projects accepted for funding under the "Telematics for research" sector of the Community's specific programme in the field of telematics applications of common interest.

The SCIMITAR project aims to reinforce the coherence of projects in this sector by promoting synergy between them and providing a channel for exchange of expertise and experience. The project will facilitate information flows with other activities addressing related technology development and deployment. It will, moreover, prevent duplication of effort, and promote exchange of best practice within the sector.

SCIMITAR will act as a focus for dissemination of results to the research community, and will provide the channel for coordination between the work of the sector and external bodies, through close cooperation with the programme level activities: ETHOS (Technology and Market Watch) and CONCORD (Concertation Activities). It will also function as a technology observatory for the research community, tracking the rapid developments which characterize this sector.

SCIMITAR will contribute to the work of other projects in the sector by assisting them in producing input to standardization processes, and in the production and dissemination of information about their results, either as papers for conferences, or through the channels of the World Wide Web.

The main results expected are:

- A focal point for coordination with programme-level support actions and external organizations;
- A common framework for dissemination to the research community, including easy access to project results;
- Seamless cooperation between projects;
- Increased European involvement in relevant international bodies;
- Technical notes for project partners on technology issues of interest to all projects;
- Inputs to the programme level ETHOS project (Technology and Market Watch) and the ETHOS newsletter.
