Research and Development in Advanced Communications Technologies in Europe (RACE)
1983, Brussels (Belgium), in the framework of Directorate F, now Directorate B, of Directorate-General XIII Telecommunications, Information Industries and Innovation of the European Commission (EC). The Programme was completed 1994, although some projects continued to receive financing to end 1995; replaced by Advanced Communications Technologies and Services Programme (ACTS).
As approved by the Council of the European Union: Promote competitiveness of the EU's telecommunications industry, operators and service providers in order to make available to final users the services which will sustain the competitiveness of the European economy and contribute to maintaining and creating employment in Europe. Main objective: Prepare for the 'Introduction of Integrated Broadband Communication (IBC)' taking into account the evolving ISDN and national introduction strategies, progressing to Union-wide services by 1995. General objectives: Promote the EU's telecommunications industry; enable the European network operators to compete under the best possible conditions; enable a critical number of the Member States of EU to introduce commercially viable IBC services by 1995; offer opportunities to service providers to improve cost-performance and introduce new services; make new services available to final users at a cost and on a timescale at least as favourable as in other major western countries; support the formation of a single European market for all IBC equipment and services; contribute to regional development within the European Union, by allowing less-developed regions to benefit fully from telecommunications developments.Available with paid subscription only.
