Project full title: REsearch And Training Action for System On Chip DesigN
Contract no.: IST - 2000 - 30193

        The project came into force from January 1, 2002. The contract was signed by European Commission on the one side and by twenty two R&D organisations on the other side. This R&D organisations are situated at nineteen countries from Central and Eastern Europe and present Academic and Research Institutions.
        The goal of the REASON project is to facilitate integration of the academic and research institutions of Central and Eastern Europe working in the field of microelectronics into the mainstream R&D activities going on in the EU countries. For development of successful co-operation the following conditions must be met:

  • The level of competencies and skills of researchers from Central/Eastern Europe must be high enough to allow participation in advanced and challenging research projects targeted at solving the problems faced by European electronic industry.
  • State-of-the-art research infrastructure must be available and maintained in Central/Eastern Europe.
  • The potential research partners from EU countries must be aware of competencies and achievements of their colleagues from Central/Eastern Europe.
  • In the case of participation of SMEs, additional condition is their awareness of the IST programme and ability to absorb new technologies.

        The project may also contribute to the goals of hardware-software integration and design methodologies for intelligent microsystems and subsystems.
