Outline of presentation
  • IST within FP6
  • Structure and budget
  • The IST Priority
  • Objectives, vision content
  • IST workprogramme 2003-2004
  • Main features
  • Focus and priorities
  • Roadmap of calls and budgets
  • FP6 Instruments in IST
  • Reminder of new and traditional instruments
  • Examples
  • Applications in e-business and e-work

ERA-a new context for EU supported RTD
  • Moving to a European level Research policy
  • Strengthen co-operation between National and EU
  • Improve links between National and EU policies
    and schemes
  • Supports enlargement
  • Development of a shared vision on European RTD
  • Potential for co-funding arrangements
  • FP6 is a major instrument to realise ERA
  • Realising ERA will require
  • New thinking more strategic and goal oriented
  • New approach concentration, critical mass and
  • New scope taking account of the international
    dimension of RTD(greater awareness of whos
    doing what)
  • New instruments Integrated Projects (IPs)

  • Concentration and focus, building critical mass
  • Visionary, forward looking (longer term / high
  • Combine flexibility with greater speed in
  • Scope of activities Core technologies
    pull-through applications
  • Lisbon objectives and eEurope as context!

The IST vision
  • Bringing the users, people, to the
    foreground.... to the centre of our
  • building trustful technologies for the background
    (almost invisible)
  • Making technology adapt to people and business
  • Moving to an era where ..Our surrounding is
    the interface to IST applications services

How to avoid friction in the dynamics needed?
Trends Ambient Intelligence Landscape
  • Plentiful of network connections
  • Plentiful of computing capacity
  • Natural interfaces
  • The challenge How to develop new business and
    work models and concepts which build upon the
    ambient intelligence landscape? How to break with
    the past, constructively?

Various roles of individuals in IS
  • The ambient intelligence landscape - for all of
    us in different roles
  • As citizens trust and security, intelligent
  • As part of our organisations knowledge
    management, collaborative structures
  • As value creators pan-European interoperable
    infrastructure, common value creation process
  • .controlled by the individual !

Technical vision for the SEEM
Practical advises
  • Not that many IPs can be launched by strategic
  • The IP must meet the SP text clearly
  • Impact analysis
  • Covering the innovation process interactions
  • Technology, verification and dissemination
  • Do not bet only on IP, use supporting STREPs
  • Size?

Some practical aspects
  • Contact the relevant Commission people before too
    much effort (sondage)
  • Use the EOIs for checking related activities
  • Expert database on Cordis
  • IPs something entirely new, high competition,
    good not enough, very good the minimal
  • Management more important than before, crisis
    management to be described

Conclusions Opportunities challenges
  • Realising ERA requires ..
  • new thinking
  • concentration, critical mass flexibility are
  • FP6 provides a key opportunity to shape and
    improvethe impact of IST research in Europe
  • A new generation of technologies applications
    is emerging
  • Europe is well positioned to shape the future
  • The pace of development is increasingly fast
  • The aim is people first in all-inclusive
    knowledge society
  • Simplification of procedures and fast reactivity
  • an extensive effort needed to mobilise the
