EUROMAP (European Opportunity Mapping) is designed to conduct an analysis of national priorities and opportunities for future LE research and applications.
The project brings together organisations acting as national 'focal points' from all EU/EEA countries.
It will undertake to promote awareness about the potential of LE within industrial and government circles, improve synergy between LE and related national programmes, and to assess, and where possible bring closer together, national policies and frameworks in the LE area.
As a result of the fieldwork to be undertaken in the participating countries, EUROMAP is expected to yield an informed view on relevant national research strands, industrial plans and expectations, and government initiatives.
From this base of information, scenarios and 'opportunity maps' will be made, facilitating trans-national co-operation to the benefit of research, industry and public services.
Awareness will be greatly enhanced through a series of 'national seminars' bringing together representatives from the sectors and groups targeted by the project.
