There are any number of ways to keep track of developments in European ICT research, ranging from personal contacts through to the mass media. Somewhere in between you have services like Ideal-ist and ICT Results.
While ICT Results mainly looks to showcase the fruits of successful research and technology partnerships funded by the European Union, Ideal-ist aims its sextant squarely at the other end of the horizon. It helps projects to kick start their innovative research and overcome barriers along the way.
With its new platform, the INTOUCH Special Interest Group (SIG), a whole new level of co-operation is possible, where European ICT funding ‘old hands’ can pass on the tricks of the trade to newcomers to the Framework Programmes and ICT research.
As more and more calls in the ICT theme of FP7 are published throughout 2008, this is an opportunity for network members to share ideas and pass on best practices. What’s more, through targeted newsletters, presentations, virtual meetings, moderated forums and downloadable documents, INTOUCH members have at their disposal a veritable online agora.What it says on the box
INTOUCH is open to all current Ideal-ist members and partners, including national contact points (NCPs), third-country contacts, and European policy-makers. It is also available to ICT information partners, such as the new Enterprise Europe Network (Innovation Relay Centre plus the Euro Info Centres), CORDIS and ICT Results – as an Ideal-ist umbrella member.

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
The oceans are the largest global heat reservoir. As a result of man-made global warming, the temperature in the global climate system increases; around 90% of...
