ITrust workshop Glasgow 2-4 Sep 2002

bullet1 TrustCOM

bullet2 Network of Excellence

"Network of Excellence on Trust [Management|Theories|Models|Systems|Applications|Technologies] for [open] virtual communities"

Expect call December, two months timeline, full proposal needed by January

Simpler than IP:  less money, less strict requirements (budget 1-3 million Euros -- higher than existing NoE 0.1-1 Euro).

Harder: expect more members, results, open to take on new members;  need to have associated projects.  Goal to nurture, create scientific communities.

Not just workshops and conferences;  but synchronize interdisciplinary activities

Industry participation requirements

Role of ITrust - to run the workshops of the NoE?

NoE vs ITrust - more people, more projects, not just a talking shop.

Emil:  need to highlight things we'd like to do (rather than focus on research topics)

EU enlargement likely an influencing factor in EU decision
