Vision of the IST programme

”Create an ambient intelligence landscape(for seamless delivery of services and applications)in Europe relying also upon testbeds andopen source software, develop user-friendliness,and develop and converge the networking infrastructure in Europe to world-class"

M. Richonnier

Vision of the IST - KA1“Ambient intelligence”

  • Beyond “ the screen and keyboard interface”

  • A knowledge society for ALL

  • “Our surrounding is the interface” to IST applications and services

  • Multi-sensorial interfaces supported by computing and networking:

    • everywhere

    • in everyday objects

    • offering natural interactions (voice, gesture etc.)

M. Richonnier

IST KA1 R&D paradigms

  • From data telematics (3rd FP) to multi-media telematics (4th FP) to ambient intelligence (5th FP)

  • Ambient intelligence = ubiquitous computing + ubiquitous communication + intelligent interfaces which will allow...

  • The realisation of innovative,user-friendly, intelligent and communicating application systems that will improvedelivery of services to users.

M. Richonnier

Reminder on IST

  • Visible part of integration: Cross Programme Actions and Integrated Application Platforms (12% of budget) = “the tip of the iceberg”

  • Application R&D (+/- 50% of the budget) combines both technology research and system integration

  • Genuine industrial participation with a view to exploitation of results

M. Richonnier

Key Action 1: Objectives

  • Exploit the potential offered by progress in “ambient intelligence” through RTD in new application systems for making general interest services user-friendly, dependable, cost-effective and interoperable.

 improve competitiveness & meet user demands

M. Richonnier

Key Action 1:Aim

1. Innovativeapplication systems, i.e. systems that will be new at the end of the project

2. That have significant exploitation potential

Innovative integration

- progress wrt state of the art

New IST components

M. Richonnier

Key Action 1:Focus

  • Improving impact:

    • Critical mass:

      • Open to larger projects - no “one size fits all”

    • Concentration on strategic issues

  • Focus on the vision of “ambient intelligence”

  • Fostering longer-term and/or high-risk effort

  • Reinforcing the eEurope momentum beyond 2002

M. Richonnier

Key Action 1 in Call 6(First call in 2001)

  • Open: January 27, 2001

  • Deadline: April 25, 2001

    • do not wait until the last minute!

M. Richonnier

KEY Action 1:Our goals


Attract RTD proposals with critical mass, strategic impact and real economic value, e.g. an average EU funding

of 2.0 M€

M. Richonnier

KEY Action 1:Our goals


Attract Consortia that are manageable and where all partners have a clear role and a significant task in contribution, e.g.:

  • Consortia of not more than 6 partners is ideal

  • No partner with microscopic input (such as 15000 € per year!)

M. Richonnier

KEY Action 1:Our goals


In order to avoid cost on your and our side, only high quality proposals should be submitted, e.g.:

  • Over-subscription not more than a factor of 4
