Abstract

The European Commission's 5 th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, 1998-2002 1 is divided into five thematic and three horizontal programmes. The Information Society Technologies (IST) programme 2 is the largest of the thematic research and development programmes with a global budget of 3600 million Euro. The main focus of the IST programme (1999 work programme) is on enhancing the user-friendliness of the information society: improving the accessibility, relevance and quality of public-services especially for the disabled and elderly; empowering citizens as employees, entrepreneurs and customer; facilitating creativity and access to learning; helping to develop a multi-lingual and multi-cultural information society; ensuring universally available access and the intuitiveness of next-generation interfaces; and encouraging design-for-all. Multimedia content finds a central role in the IST programme. The objective here is to confirm Europe as a leading force in this field and enable it to realise the potential of its creativity and culture.
