COPRAS: The Link between Research and Standards - new Brochure

COPRAS in a Nutshell

COPRAS is a 3-year Specific Support Action under the European Union's Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. COPRAS is created by a consortium of the European Standards Organizations (CEN, CENELEC & ETSI) and two major international specification providers (The Open Group & W3C), put together with the aim to improve the research/standards interface under FP6.

The COPRAS consortium partners are all members of the ICT Standards Board, commonly known as ICTSB, the coordinating forum for European ICT standardization, which will be kept regularly informed of the project's progress, and will discuss the emerging results to ensure that the project outputs are directed appropriately.

The overall strategic objective of COPRAS is to establish a supporting action to enable the FP6 IST projects (in all the three envisaged calls) to interface with standardization activities in Europe and elsewhere in a consistent and effective manner while increasing standards awareness within the research and technical development area.
