The structure of IST in FP6

The EC Sixth Framework Programme defines three specific programmes, the first of which sets the goal of "Integrating and strengthening the European Research Area". Information Society Technologies (IST) is the second of the seven thematic priorities defined in this specific programme. The strategic objectives defined in its biannual work programmes cover the following five areas.

1.2. Information Society Technologies
1.2.1. Applied IST research addressing major societal and economic challenges
1.2.2. Communication, computing and software technologies
1.2.3. Components and microsystems
1.2.4. Knowledge and interface technologies
1.2.5. IST future and emerging technologies
