OBJECTIVES

This BENEFIT Day continues the tradition of Special Days, which have established themselves in BENEFIT, as indispensable forums, where all those challenging problems related to building pan-European projects can be presented and discussed. The aim of the Special Days was to highlight the importance and benefits of the joint European research and development projects from the point of view of the participating countries and of the European Community. How do these joint programs fit the research and development policy of these countries ? What were the main advantages of the joint projects such as Copernicus, Phare and other joint programs for the Central and Eastern European Countries, and what are the experiences of the European Community?

The Day continues this tradition by giving a survey of these projects seen from the top, from the side of the general science and development policy of the countries and from the European Community. Speakers give a survey and evaluation of the general science and development policies of participating countries and of the European Union.

The BENEFIT Day is concerned also with technology transfer in pan-European scene, and with new information technologies based on Internet which support collaboration over wide distances. BENEFIT believes that these new technologies will in essence enable transformation of the envisioned information society into the collaborative one.


In respond to this CALL for contributions the following Programme has been built.
