									     FP6 Thematic Priority 2:
Information Society Technologies

       Dr. Neil T. M. Hamilton
         Executive Director
• Areas of focus in this Thematic Priority
• What’s left in FP6
• Why you should be involved
• How to get involved

• http://www.cordis.lu/ist/home.html
6th Framework Programme: IST
• Applied IST research addressing major societal
  and economic challenges
• Communication, computing and software
• Components and microsystems
• Knowledge and interface technologies
• Future and Emerging Technologies
• Budget: 3984 Billion Euros……..
 IST 2005-06 Work Programme
• Puts more emphasis on:
• mastering complexity by pioneering new approaches to
  cope with the infinitely small as well as the very large.
  System on Chip in nanoelectronics, complexity in
  software development, broadband communications and
• exploring multidisciplinary fields combining ICT with
  other science and technology fields: in micro and
  nanosystems, in ICT for Health, in Cognitive systems
  and in Future and Emerging Technologies (FET),
• promoting innovation from ICT use by bringing services
  and technology developments closer together: mobile
  communications and for micro and nano systems.
    Strategic Objectives in Call 5

2.5.1 Photonic components
2.5.2 Micro/nano based sub-systems
2.5.3 Embedded Systems
2.5.4 Advanced Grid Technologies, Systems and Services
2.5.5 Software and services
2.5.6 Research networking testbeds
2.5.7 Multimodal Interfaces
2.5.8 ICT for Networked Businesses
2.5.9 Collaborative Working Environments
2.5.10 Access to and preservation of cultural and scientific resources
2.5.11 eInclusion
2.5.12 ICT for Environmental Risk Management
       International co-operation

• “Proactive initiatives will build on international activities in
  basic and long term research in the relevant fields
  involving in particular the United States, Canada, Japan,
  Australia, China, S. Korea, India and Russia. They may
  also evolve to include other countries where there is
  complementarity of basic research interests and
  balanced benefits.

• Proactive initiatives to be called in 2005 – 06
• FET Proactive Initiatives – Call 5
• 2.3.4 (xi) Simulating Emergent Properties in Complex
      Specific Support Actions
• Significant emphasis has been placed on
  Support Actions:
  – to promote and facilitate the dissemination, transfer,
    exploitation, assessment and/or take-up of past and
    present programme results;
  – to contribute to strategic objectives, (e.g. pilot
    initiatives on benchmarking, mapping, networking,
  – to prepare future community RTD activities, (e.g. via
    prospective studies, exploratory measures, pilot
    actions etc.);
          What is left in FP6 ?
•   638 million Euros in IST research funding;
•   2005 / 06 Work Programme;
•   5th (and Final) Call for Proposals, + FET;
•   21st September 2005; 16th November
•   Significant opportunities for international
    collaboration / co-operation
5th Call details
          Why get involved?
• The Research World is changing
• Europe is (trying to) take on the USA
• Australia has acknowledged strengths
