There is an increased need of R&D projects, international co-operation and networking, co-ordination of the national and European research activities in present and future Framework Programmes especially in the New Member States (NMS), the Associated Candidate Countries (ACC) and the Newly Independent States (NIS). ATVN-EU-GP came to fill out this gap. ATVN-EU-GP will not only identify and exploit good practices but further improve them to act as a showcases by preparing of professional audio/video templates which will be instrumental in the achievement of the eEurope targets and IST Call 3 objectives.

Also important is to prepare them for future international co-operation, to improve the networking and co-ordinate the national, regional and European research activities. ATVN-EU-GP will also trigger the impetus for new research and preparation of the best practices for projects in different selected IST areas.
Showcasing and promoting the best projects from the NMS, the ACC and the NIS around the world will mobilize European industrial and research community around high-risk long term goals and will increase innovation and competitiveness in business and industry. The multimedia library with the audio/video programmes of the best practices in projects will enable access to the best examples of good practice activities, giving the IST society a perfect resource and guidelines for new projects ideas. It will accelerate research and by disseminating the best examples reduce barriers in the IST society in United Europe. ATVN-EU-GP is a kind of continuation of ICMAITN project (IST-2001-38635) in which scientists and specialists exchange their knowledge.
