The IST event will gather together all the key players of European information society technologies. The event concentrates on European policies, strategies, research activities and results in all areas of the Information Society. We welcome you to participate in the conference, exhibition and networking events.
The conference programme should appeal to decision-makers from the public sector, private industry and the world of research as well as to interested citizens. The Exhibition shows concrete results of research in and beyond Europe made possible by the IST Programme. Networking Sessions complement the conference and exhibition and contribute to one of the prime objectives of the European Commission in the area of R&D - to encourage forward thinking and collaborative initiatives for FP7.
At the IST 2006 you’ll also hear the latest news on the 7th Framework Programme. The event is organised by the European Commission in cooperation with Tekes, Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation, and the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Finland.
