The "Education and Training" sector of the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of Telematics Applications has recently launched its own home page on the World Wide Web. The home page is designed to provide a useful resource for a wide audience. It promises to be an important vehicle for increasing the availability of information on the work of the "Education and Training" sector.

The user-friendly home page has been designed to give maximum information on the sector and its projects. It also provides a gateway to a host of related programmes, initiatives and publications at the national, European and global level.

Information covered in the home page includes an overview of the sector's aims and activities together with practical guidance on how to apply for project funding. The "Projects in Focus" section lists and describes all current projects, whilst "What's News" provides the latest information on a range of subjects - calls for proposals, new initiatives, key publications and recent events.

The home page also takes a look at the people behind the organizations involved in the "Education and Training" sector. "Who's Who" provides readers with essential contact points at the project, national and European level.

The "Resource Centre" provides easy access to a wealth of information: key publications, project reports, useful tools, logos and graphics, examples of best practice and links to a range of related sites. Its glossary can be consulted for help with EC acronyms and technical terms.

The home page's "Diary" provides up-to-date information on a wide range of regional, national and international events.

Pages that are currently "under construction" include "Discussion Groups" which aim to encourage people to share information and voice opinions on specific topics, and "Talkback" which will invite comments and views.

It is very much hoped that the sector's own information, together with contributions from visitors to the site, will combine to ensure that the home page quickly develops into a useful and comprehensive information source, of interest to a wide audience.
