ETHOS, the European Telematics Horizontal Observatory, is a project supported by the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of telematics applications.

ETHOS will monitor and assess the deployment of applications of information and communications technology, developments in market trends, the state of deployment of telematics applications and user needs, and developments in both computer and telecommunications technologies that present a potential for telematics applications.

The project will involve working closely with all participants in projects funded by the Telematics Applications programme. ETHOS will coordinate the electronic presentation of results from projects and sector level telematic watches. It will also establish links with other international, European and national initiatives in telematics, in order to provide programme participants with a comprehensive and coherent view of developments in their sectors.

ETHOS maintains a variety of information sources which are available free of charge, including:

- Listings of Telematics Applications projects;
- News relating to telematics developments;
- Listings of government access on the World Wide Web.

Other resources will be added such as funding sources and other information relating to telematics development and resources for marketing of telematics projects. ETHOS has also been adopted as a news source for the G7 Information Society pilot projects.
