New EU project ALIPRO - Pushing the integration of research programmes on mobile communications

27.04.2005


A recently started EU project is pushing for a better integration of research programmes on mobile communications in Europe. Under the project name ALIPRO, a consortium led by the Polish MOST Foundation aims at supporting the alignment of the new member states’ national and regional research programmes with European IST research in the area of mobile technologies, applications, and services.



The project will accelerate the creation, improvement, and alignment of mobility-related national and regional activities and programmes in the new member states and accession candidate countries, strengthening their integration on European level. ALIPRO will achieve this goal through benchmarking, vision-building and roadmapping as well as dissemination of the results to the relevant stakeholders. In this context, ALIPRO will conduct a survey on the national programmes in each country.

Another important goal of the project is to gather mobile-technology experts from the new member states and accession candidate countries and involve them into the work of eMobility, the Mobile and Wireless Communications and Technology Platform for concentrating European research resources in the mobile and wireless area. In order to assure a significant impact, ALIPRO will disseminate its results to the relevant stakeholders through a web-based information platform, a workshop, and presentations at relevant national events.


ALIPRO is a Specific Support Action within EU Framework Programme 6. The project is performed by a consortium of 14 organisations from all new member states as well as Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Germany. “This composition will ensure representative benchmarking results and a broad European vision,” explained professor Mieczyslaw Muraszkiewicz from the Foundation for Mobile Open Society through wireless Technology (MOST), the project co-ordinator.

ALIPRO is supported by the governments of Poland and Lithuania and by the Romanian parliament. The project started in March 2005 and has a duration of one year. ALIPRO’s goals go beyond aligning and integrating research programmes. “We intend to start a process of further improvement of scope and quality of the research programmes in the new member states and accession candidate countries,” said professor Muraszkiewicz.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
