|IST E-NET project|
|Thematic Network in Emerging Networking Technologies|
The E-NET structure has been specifically designed to address the coordination complexity by progressively building a management environment that resembles that of a single research institution. The final objective of the network is to act as a single virtual centre of excellence with working groups located at different places, but highly coordinated in spite of the physical distance.
To address the activity type and technical dimensions of the organizational complexity, it has been decided that the primary organizational entity will the activity type, and the specific technology will be in a secondary plane. This leads to a Network structure organized in terms of horizontal Workpackages, each targeted to coordinate a specific activity:
The objectives of E-NET imply a considerable management effort because it is required to harmonise work under the three following dimensions:
Reinforce European scientific and technological excellence in the networking
area through a progressive and lasting integration of research capacities
existing in the European Research Area. The context of E-NET is a continuation
of the work carried out by COST 263 and COST 264. The work in E-NET aims to be
continued into the future Networks of Excellence of the 6FP. The means to
achieve these goals is the creation of a distributed virtual centre of
excellence to concentrate a critical mass of competence and skill in advanced
The joint work will be funded and structured through different local, national and international grants.
The project is partially supported by the European Commission in the IST (Information Society Technologies) framework.
Project reference: IST-2001-37814
The project started on July 1st, 2002 for a duration of 1.5 years.
The project has started to develop a so-called Web Ring, where each partner provides information on his research topics.
The E-NEXT Network of Excellence (NoE) of the 6th European framework programme is now continuing the work started in E-NET
