Feasibility Study for a direct Europe Link with Latin America

Feasibility Study for a direct Europe Link with Latin America

Objective

Worldwide activity on the development of the Information Society is being heavily hampered by the difficulty of integrating e-Infrastructures in different continents with the exception of North America.We are proposing to run a Feasibility Study to build a state-of-the-art communication infrastructure connecting Europe and Latin America, with the further objective of facilitate and trigger the creation of a private consortium – with possible minor contributions from public sources – to put the infrastructure into reality.We propose to perform a whole range of activities to this extent:•\tTechnical feasibility study.•\tAssessment of the market and of its perspectives from the commercial and the points of view•\tClarification of the financial framework.Other activities will be directed to maintain the interest in the project high and to try and create a kernel for the consortium that will have to build and operate the cable.
