EP 2010:The Future of Research into Publishing, Content and Knowledge Technologies for the Knowledge Economy.
Wernher Behrendt, Guntram Geser, Andrea Mulrenin (2003): EP 2010:The Future of Research into Publishing, Content and Knowledge Technologies for the Knowledge Economy. Summary Report and Dossiers, Luxembourg, September 2003
In October 2002, the former Information Society DG’s Unit D1, Electronic Publishing, commissioned a strategic study entitled “The Future of Electronic Publishing towards 2010” (EP2010). The focus of this study was to draw up a road map for relevant technology research and development for the interactive electronic publishing industry. Since then however, triggered by internal restructuring of the Electronic Publishing and Knowledge Management units, to form Knowledge Management and Content Creation (KMCC), the EP2010 study has shifted its focus towards the research issues surrounding Knowledge and Content Technologies for a prospective Knowledge-based Economy in 2010. The shift occurred by consensus of all stakeholders including those representing interactive electronic publishing, which is also reflected in the subtitle of the study, “The Future of Research into Publishing, Content and Knowledge Technologies for the Knowledge-Based Economy”.
The primary objective of EP2010 is to provide key orientations for policy makers and input to concrete implementation measures. In particular, the study aims at …
- Providing a coherent framework for IST management within the Information Society DG, especially Directorate E
- Fostering dialogue between industrial and public sector stakeholders
- Giving input towards the evolution of RTD work programmes
The EP2010 study consists of seven thematically focused dossiers that create the argumentative basis for this Summary Report. These dossiers are: Recommendations for Research, Research Road Map, Smart Content Vision, Situation Analysis of the Interactive Media Sector, Digital Games and Learning, Content and Knowledge Management Systems, and finally, Knowledge Markets.
