The principal goal of the euCognition network is to advance the emerging area of cognitive systems by fostering truly inter-disciplinary interaction, spanning a greater spectrum of people, perspectives, and applications than is possible in a single RandD project.
The objective is to support the research community that is already involved in FP6 projects in cognitive systems and to help other individuals from research institutes and companies become involved in this initiative. This will be achieved by facilitating interaction between projects and collaboration between individuals on a variety of fronts, ranging from workshops, conferences, courses, exchanges of staff and students, development and dissemination of training material, access to development platforms, research planning, and the creation of an extensive dynamic web-based repository resources to facilitate research, education, and outreach to the greater community.
The ultimate aim is to leverage added-value from existing work through interaction and to use this to encourage further contributions from new participants. A key objective of the network is to foster interaction between all the many different scientific sectors involved in this multi-disciplinary area and to help create truly inter-disciplinary perspectives.
The network will be organized in two complementary ways: (i) by the different areas comprising cognitive systems (the underlying paradigms of cognition, the scientific development of cognitive systems, and highly-topical and formative issues) and (ii) by the activities of the network (Outreach, Scientific Outlook, Education, and On-line resources).
