From ESPRIT to H2020: The Evolution of ICT in the European Research Framework Programmes

Filipa Duarte

Abstract

The European Research Framework Programmes have been around since 1984. The Framework Programmes have suffered many changes through the years and saw several increases in budget and impact. The area of information and communications technologies was triggered with ESPRIT in 1982 and has been financed up until Horizon 2020. This paper presents that evolution focusing in the Information and Communication Technologies area.
