ALIPRO is an EU research project under Framework Programme 6 which aims at supporting the alignment of the new member states’ national and regional research programmes with European IST research in the area of mobile technologies, applications, and services.
The project will accelerate the creation, improvement, and alignment of mobility-related national and regional activities and programmes in the new member states (NMS) and accession candidate countries (ACC), strengthening their integration on European level. ALIPRO will achieve this goal through benchmarking, vision-building and road mapping as well as dissemination of the results to the relevant stakeholders in the NMS and ACC.
ALIPRO aims to achieve the following general goals:
- Better alignment of national and regional research programmes on mobility with the European IST research, according to the goal of creating a European Research Area.
- Stimulating an intensified information flow between the major stakeholders: public authorities in the NMS and ACC responsible for national and regional research programmes and R&D entities that benefit from these programmes. In addition, ALIPRO aims to encourage a continuous, close relationship on policy-making and working level between these stakeholders and the European Commission.
- Sharing knowledge and information, developing awareness, and promoting best practices on mobile IST programmes as identified during the ALIPRO project execution.
