The Fifth Framework Programme, which defines Community activities in
the field of research, technological development and demonstration for
the period 1998-2002, and in particular the Information Society Programme
(IST), has been opened to participation of legal entities established in
the Newly Associated States (NAS).
Currently, agreements with BULGARIA, REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS, CZECH REPUBLIC, ESTONIA, HUNGARY, LATVIA, LITHUANIA, POLAND, ROMANIA, SLOVAKIA, SLOVENIA and MALTA are in force.
Experience from first ‘East-West’ projects has shown that especially in the areas of Design, CAD, Characterisation and Testing Issues in Microsystems and Subsystems, there is profound technical knowledge and experience within research institutes and companies in these countries, while many companies in west European countries lack the resources for research and fast product development. Co-operation could help to bring European research beyond the current state of the art, to optimise the allocation of resources to speed up product development cycles and to get to market faster.
To speed up the integration process, NAS legal entities are encouraged to participate in initiatives which have already started within the IST Programme (IST Workprogramme WP2001, Action line VIII.1.6, http://www.cordis.lu/IST). Thematic workshops are being organised by Directorate E of DG INFSO, to inform NAS potential participants about ongoing projects and to bring eastern and western participants in this field into contact.
Who should attend?
This Technology Day is a good opportunity to hear about current projects
supported by the EC, which are seeking new participants for extension of
the project objectives. Further, the event will be a platform for finding
partners for new collaboration and projects at European level.
The participants will receive information on how to set up and submit a proposal for a technology application project to the current Framework Programme.
