Communication network development - call for proposals

十二月 16, 2004

Brussels, 15 Dec 2004

The European Commission has published a call for proposals for communication network development under the 'research infrastructures' section of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).

The objective of this scheme in support of existing research infrastructures is to create, in conjunction with the priority thematic research area on information society technologies (IST), a denser network between related initiatives, in particular by establishing a high-capacity and high-speed communications network for all researchers in Europe (GÉANT) and specific high performance Grids and test-beds (GRIDs).

The Communication Network Development scheme (area 3.2.3 in the work programme) will be concerned with the development of a 'cyber-infrastructure' for research, capitalising on new computing and communication opportunities, and will promote a further breadth and depth to the collaboration amongst researchers in Europe. In this context, broadband communication networks and Grid technologies are key. They are also highly relevant to the political goals set out by the European Research Area and the eEurope/eEurope+ initiative, and should be used as a means to enhance scientific cooperation with third countries.

The total indicative budget for this call is 25 million euro. The Commission requests the use of Coordination Actions and Specific Support Actions.
