Bring Researchers On Advanced Communications To Industry And Network Operators

Objective

To provide opportunities for the training of researchers through their participation in state-of-the-art research, through the organisation and delivery of seminars and summer schools.

The project for 1995 will include the organisation and delivery of the 3rd European distributed RACE Summer School featuring training on advanced broadband communications as well as a wide dissemination of its results.

To contribute for the provision of the core systems engineering, technical and management staff for the telecommunications and IT sectors.
The main objective of the research were:
to provide opportunities for the training of researchers through their participation in state of the art research and through seminars and summer schools;
to contribute to the provision of the core systems engineering, technical and management staff for the telecommunications and information technology (IT) sectors;
to create modules for training managers concerning business opportunities afforded by advanced telecommunications.

The research includes:
the establishment and operation of an inventory of training needs and opportunities;
the development and implementation of a coordinated structure of seminars, summer schools, and placement in advanced research laboratories;
the involvement of associated business schools in the organization and dissemination of study programmes on opportunities for the business community arising from advanced telecommunications;
the use of the expertise of leading researchers in the development and delivery of advanced training to students, and core technical, engineering and management staff of the sector actors.

As a result of the research 2 documents were produced, namely the project directions report and first year seminar plan. In addition, the project sponsored its first seminar which was a briefing on ISS 92. At the end of 1992 a document on training needs and opportunities was produced.
Technical Approach

The project for 1995 will include the organisation and delivery of an European distributed RACE Summer School featuring training on advanced broadband communication using advanced technologies and distance training methods and tools at IBC Centres of Excellence using National Hosts resources. This task will be fulfilled by a consortium of operators, academics, and industry representatives through the BRAIN project.

Use of the experts of the leading researchers in RACE in the development and delivery of advanced training to students, and core technical, engineering, and management staff of the sector actors. This ensures that the training will be state-of-the-art, and will assist the process of rapid dissemination of results, and the establishment of consensus.

Key Issues

The pan-European ATM trial connecting the National Hosts from countries involved in the event proposed for 95 will be of key relevance in the provision, at an European level, of the necessary communications infrastructure.

Expected Impact

Besides the results achieved with the training events already delivered, the organisation of distributed summer schools at a European level will require a complex collaboration between several institutions and R&D projects within the framework of EU initiatives.
