This page provides a summary of the projects currently supported by Telematics for Research. Links are provided to fact sheets and information on the current status of the projects.

ADVISER II
This project demonstrates a value-added service that provides personalised access to research results and materials. It continues the work of the ADVISER I project into an service-oriented phase that aims to support all EC RTD projects.
More info: see the Home Page.
CoBrow/D
This project attempts to combine the advantages of the WWW with synchronous communications tools including videoconferencing. It will conduct extended user and service trials of the toolkit developed by the CoBrow/R project, and will integrate new technologies such as IPv6.
More info: see the Home Page.
CESAR
This project is developing a comprehensive toolkit for asynchronous and synchronous multimedia collaboration based on Internet technology. In particular it will provide support for session management, multimedia publishing and real-time presentation. It succeeds the CoopWWW project.
More info: see the Home Page.
DESIRE II
This project is investigating sustainable approaches to search and access multimedia resources. It will continue to enhance the DESIRE I applications that facilitate subject-based search services and regionalised enquiries. There will also be dissemination and demonstration activities to encourage the uptake of these services.
More info: see the Home Page.
DYNACORE
This project aims to develop an application that will allow scientists to remotely access equipment in astronomic observatories and nuclear fusion laboratories. It continues the work of the REMOT project.
More info: see the Home Page.
ICE-CAR
This project aims to develop the security technology necessary for administrative, e-commerce, intra-organisation communication and health care applications. It will also promote compatible and interconnectable public key infrastructures (PKIs) which are necessary to guarantee the authenticity and validity of public keys in use.
More info: see the Home Page.
MECCANO
This project continues the activities of the MERCI project. It aims to improve existing Internet-based conferencing tools for use in collaborative research and distance education. Particular attention is being directed to user interfaces, cross-platform support, integration with end-user applications, and support for resource reservation. Verification activities with the research community are also being undertaken.
More info: see the Home Page.
Q-MED
This project aims to promote academic networking in the Eastern Mediterranean region by providing a gateway to the TEN-155 network.
More info: see the Home Page.
QUANTUM
This project is deploying a network that interconnects National Research Networks in Europe. The network, known as TEN-155, operates at speeds between 10 and 155 Mbps and offers an IP (Internet Protocol) production service and an ATM VP service for experimental purposes. The project also includes a programme for testing new network technologies.
More info: see the Home Page.
SCIMITAR 2
This project provides concertation between Telematics for Research participants and relevant networking organisations. It also provides an information point for disseminating results from the individual projects.
More info: see the Home Page.
SELECT
This project is developing tools that are able to rate and filter network resources (such as Web pages, Usenet, mailing lists). It aims to improve the usefulness of the Internet to scientific and technical communities by providing information about the quality of resources.
More info: see the Home Page.
THETIS
The objective of this project is to develop an interoperable system that will assist access and visualisation of data repositories via the Internet. Coastal Zone Management (CZM) is one area where such a system is required and the project will focus on supporting CZM in the Mediterranean Region.
More info: see the Home Page.

The public results of these projects can be found on the Telematics for Research Deliverables page - indexed by project. If you would like to receive announcements of important results in projects as they become available, consider subscribing to the Telematics for Research Informational Mailing List.

To support these projects and monitor their work for possible coordination with other projects, each project is assigned a SCIMITAR contact person. Please check the Telematics for Research Project Liaisons page for more information.
