A European Union-Latin American Initiative for Cooperation in Information Society Technologies

ERCIM has been designated by the European IST (Information Society Technologies) programme to propose the Terms of Reference of a future EU-Latin America programme. ERCIM will organize Information Days in Latin America on the European Information Society Technologies (IST) Programme. Their objective is to raise awareness, among the Latin American S&T actors, of the opportunities related to the calls for proposals this programme issues regularly. ERCIM will produce a report to identify subjects of common interest and recommend actions or mechanisms for funding bodies in order to increase the R&D cooperation between Europe and Latin America in Information Technologies. They will be presented at a workshop in Europe.
