© 2002 EUREKA


"Building the digital future" provided the theme for ITEA's 3rd Annual Symposium, which brought 250 European software experts and ICT policy-makers together in Amsterdam for two days in October. The wide-ranging programme of events featured an inspirational exhibition of over 30 projects, including ITEA 00005 DIGITAL CINEMA, profiled in this EUREKA News 60's feature on digital broadcasting.


Keynote speeches addressing different aspects of the challenges of digital transition were given by Jean-Charles Hourcade (senior vice-president, research and innovation, and CTO at Thomson Multimedia), Cesar Vohringer (senior vice-president and CTO at Philips Consumer Electronics), Maurizio Decina (a board member of Italtel, director of CEFRIEL and professor at the Politecnico di Milano) and Emmanuel Caquot (head of service for Information Society and Technologies at the French Ministry of Economy, Finances and Industry) who, as France prepares to assume the EUREKA chair, gave a timely French perspective on collaboration within the European Research Area (ERA).
