Abstract:

The goal of InterLink is to support coordination actions that will enable the European research community to interact with research communities outside Europe in a series of strategic, basic research areas, related to Information Society Technologies (IST). Thematic areas have been carefully selected based on the need to address the evolution of the Information Society in the next 10-15 years and include:

  1. software intensive systems and new computing paradigms
  2. ambient computing and communication environments
  3. intelligent and cognitive systems.

These areas are closely related to a number of strategic research areas as well as to a number of ongoing proactive initiatives funded by FET in FP6.
