                    General Information:

                    More than 2500 proposals have been received
                    following the User-friendly Information Society
                    (IST) programme's first call which closed on 16
                    June 1999. 

                    The Commission has funds for roughly one sixth of
                    these proposals, with a total of 800 million euro
                    set aside for the first call. The Commission will
                    begin contract negotiations with successful
                    consortia before the end of the year, following
                    the recommendations of the expert evaluation panel
                    which began sifting through the applications on 28

                    The IST programme is part of the Fifth Framework
                    Programme and has a total budget of 3,600 million
                    euro. The programme continues and expands the
                    achievements of the ACTS, Esprit and Telematics
                    Applications programmes from the Fourth Framework

                    For the first time, universities and organisations
                    from Central and Eastern Europe, the EEA, Cyprus
                    and Israel participated on equal terms with
                    proposers from the EU. It was also possible to
                    submit formal proposals electronically, following
                    trials in ACTS and Esprit.
