EUREKA-POWER will have the following: * Establish a regional or national network of RTCs to support the EUREKA FACTORY umbrella programme. * Implement a network website for the EUREKA FACTORY programme and integrate it with the E-POWER portal. * Within each Region identify and implement a Programme of Special Interest Groups, Workshops and participate in joint conferences with E-POWER. * Develop a suite of documentation on the Region and its industry to define the state of the art of ICT in the engineering and manufacturing sector in the Region The theme for the Network workprogramme will be 'enabling inter-organisational relationships with the customer, supplier and factory'. EUREKA-POWER will be managed by a Steering Group representing each country in the Network. Keywords: engineering ICT, manufacturing ICT, regional network.
