Brussels, 11 Nov 2002
CORDIS, the European Commission's Research and Development Information Service, is offering a selection of existing research results presented according to the corresponding Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) thematic priority
The CORDIS Marketplace acts as a showcase, providing easier access to the latest available technologies in a wide range of domains, such as biology, energy, environment, food, telecommunications, and more. A new section offers quick access to exploitable results funded under previous programmes according to the corresponding FP6 thematic area.
The section provides illustrations of key research results under the seven new research themes. It offers clear descriptions of technology and contact details for each theme, including more than 100 examples for fields such as life science, information society technologies and global change.
The new section can be used as a tool by potential FP6 participants to locate relevant technology, build upon past achievements, avoid duplications and identify actors with experience. Users can also benefit directly from this collection of results, gathering European funded projects as well as technology proposed by private organisations, using it to prepare proposals. This free service, available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, is a comprehensive 'knowledge bank' of exploitable technology in Europe and will act as a key support service to the FP6 service.
