In this session representatives of the European Commission will describe the following research initiatives. The eEurope initiative aims to allow Europe to exploit its strengths and to overcome the barriers that are still holding back the uptake of digital technologies. The European Research Area (ERA) initiative offers a new horizon for scientific and technological activity and for research policy in Europe. The aim is to create conditions making it possible to increase the impact of European research efforts by strengthening the coherence of research activities and policies conducted in Europe. The session will also describe the research priorities of the next European Community Framework Programme (FP6).
