and
open new fields


Reinforce areas where Europe has
recognised strengths



Build capacity to seize
new opportunities

as they emerge


Mainstream ICT and Push the limits of technology


Boost innovation from ICT use and new forms of content


Widen the performance and functionality of technology


Combination of
market or applications
