MOSAIC explores business and societal innovation and prepares Europe for deploying innovative mobile technology in a range of application domains, to support mobile workers in distributed and location-sensitive settings. It focuses on mobile working in three key domains:
- Healthcare&Wellbeing,
- Life-Cycle Management sectors (Building Construction, Manufacturing) and
- Rural and Regional Work Environments.

It aims to work closely with the New Working Environment Unit within the European Commission to help them with future Framework Programmes and with establishing communities in the area of Ambient Intelligence, covering strategic areas such as collaboration@work, mobility@work, knowledge@work. In addition to established actors MOSAIC encourages participation of SMEs and small research teams across Europe including NAS.

MOSAIC plans to execute a series of parallel activities such as expert network building, identify mobile work best practices and critical success factors in current mobile work pilots and national programmes, identify future R&D and develop domain-specific roadmaps to support the successful deployment of mobile working within the chosen four application sectors, develop a generic roadmap and research agenda for mobile working, promote Europe wide collaboration for deploying mobile work environments, run working groups and dissemination activities, promote take-up activities etc.

Through these multi-disciplinary work activities, MOSAIC aims to influence EU policies and strategies for RTD in the area of mobile worker and mobile work environments. MOSAIC has brought together a core team with strong track record in community building and mobile working RTD, which has coordinated a series of roadmap projects and network activities under FP5, like COCONET, Future Workspaces, INTELCITIES, NESKEY, ROADCON, CE-NET.
