The MOCCA coordination action will facilitate collaboration between projects addressing mobile and wireless issues, within the European Research Area (ERA), between projects in the ERA and research programmes in Asia and the US, and between researchers and projects in the ERA and their counterparts in the developing regions of the world. It will address this collaboration in the context of the research and development of future mobile and wireless systems, including the services arid applications they serve.
MOCCA will facilitate European and international collaboration regarding research on future wireless systems and their applications. It will pave the way towards harmonised international standards for future mobile and wireless systems so that the systems meet the needs of users worldwide.
The MOCCA approach is open to all. All interested ERA projects will be invited to participate in the activities organised by the project. Inter-continental collaboration with all major mobile and wireless research programmes and standardisation fora will be supported.
MOCCA results will lead to the development of future applications, services and wireless networks, which meet the needs of users worldwide, building on Europe's strength in the mobile sector. In the long term, MOCCA results will improve the impact of the research results of the ERA wireless related projects on global standardisation activities and in the global market.
MOCCA partners are (in alphabetical order): Alcatel, DaimlerChrysler, DoCoMo, Ericsson, Eurescom, France Telecom, INRIA, Motorola, Nokia, Ovum, SAP, Siemens, Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom.
