The project is a research project running from January 1999 to June 2001 and supported by a grant of the 4th Framework Programme of the European Commission (Targeted Socio-Economic Research Programme). It is a multi-partner and multi-disciplinary project.
Since the early 1980s, developed country governments have made a strong effort to promote cooperative industrial research. Europe has been at the forefront. The support of international research consortia has been the major funding mechanism of the Framework Programmes on RTD.
