III: Trust & Security
IV: Fast and ultra-fast Internet access
V: Research and innovation
VI: Enhancing digital literacy, skills and inclusion
VII: ICT-enabled benefits for EU society

The ICT Work Programme defines the priorities for the calls for proposals to be launched in 2007. The priorities are faithful to the FP7 Framework Programme and Specific Programme decisions and in line with the main ICT policy priorities as defined in the i2010 initiative.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are critical to improve the competitiveness of European industry and to meet the demands of its society and economy.

ICTs have a catalytic impact in three key areas:

  • productivity and innovation, by facilitating creativity and management;
  • modernisation of public services, such as health, education and transport;
  • advances in science and technology, by supporting cooperation and access to information.

The ICT Work Programme under FP7 is divided into seven "Challenges" of strategic interest to European society, plus research into "Future and emerging technologies" and support for horizontal actions, such as international cooperation:

  • Challenge 1 - Pervasive and trusted network and service infrastructures
  • Challenge 2 - Cognitive systems, interaction and robotics
  • Challenge 3 - Components, systems and engineering
  • Challenge 4 - Digital libraries and content
  • Challenge 5 - Sustainable and personalised healthcare
  • Challenge 6 - Mobility, environmental sustainability and energy efficiency
  • Challenge 7 - Independent living and inclusion
  • Future and emerging technologies (FET)

About CNIV and ICVL: Strong scientific events create and promote values

CNIV and ICVL are scientific events promoting innovative technologies and methodologies in education, research and lifelong improvement, both in the pre-university and university milieu, and in the economic sector, too. Structured and organized by European principles and International standards, the two projects promote implementation of modern ideas in the initial education and continuous training, encourage and promote teamwork and collaborative activities, scientific methods and experiments, creative thinking and intuition, arguing, and proving.
