Y-NET: OSI Services for Researchers in EC Programmes
Y-NET is an initiative by a group of manufacturers in the ESPRIT framework supported by the IES, the infrastructure part of ESPRIT, to provide OSI services for researchers. It primarily addresses participants of ESPRIT and other programmes and activities of the European Community but will be open for other researchers as well. It will be embedded into the overall OSI communications to be aimed at within the COSINE framework, and by this will allow information exchange between a wide range of users, both from academic and industrial research. Y-NET will concentrate on support for researchers from industry with particular emphasis on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
