Collaborative technologies and environments enhancing the seamless creativity process, leveraging the full European potential

Objective

BrainBridges will result in a coordinated strategic European research programme in the area of Collaborative Working Environments (CWE) and enabling technologies. CWE unlocks the potential job creation, productivity, creativity and innovation potential of multi-cultural Europe, and will be a major factor in strengthening and maintaining the Union's future competitiveness in the global marketplace.

It is therefore imperative to fully leverage its potential and establish an optimal European research fabric to accelerate CWE development. By uniting a critical mass of key regional and national funding organisations, research and industry players, including a significant amount from New Member States, BrainBridges assures its ability to develop a truly pan-European ERA pilot for CWE.

In order to deliver a coordinated European research programme providing a solid common basis for policymaking and programme coordination, BrainBridges will build:
- A sustainable community dedicated to knowledge exchange and the establishment of a coordinated European CWE research programme
- Suitable networking infrastructure including an IST Collaboration Platform
- Leverage of the available scientific excellence and industry relevance

This will be achieved by systematically gathering and analysing knowledge on a regional, national and European level, regarding the current structure of CWE research funding as well as multi-disciplinary CWE research issues.
