Bringing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) closer to people's needs, making it easier to use by everyone and strengthening Europe's industrial competitiveness: These are the challenges of the IST priority in the Community's 6th Framework Programme for research and development. The aim is to make all European citizens and businesses benefit from the advantages that progress in ICT can bring and to reinforce Europe's role in shaping the development of the technology and its applications.

The Commission has just finalised the evaluation of proposals submitted to the first call for proposals to the IST priority. With the help of external experts, 236 projects were selected out of 1400 submitted. These will receive above 1 B of funding and are expected to start the work in the coming 2-3 months.

Many of these projects will be including IPv6 technology. The IPv6 Cluster will identify and report the most relevant projects.
