MAGNET Beyond is about personal networks
MAGNET Beyond is an Integrated Project (IP) supported within the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) of the EU Commission (http://www.cordis.lu/fp6/whatisfp6.htm). The project acronym stands for “My personal Adaptive Global NET and Beyond”. Some of the main focus areas of MAGNET Beyond are user-centricity, personalization and personal networking.
MAGNET Beyond wants to improve the quality of life for the user, and this we will do by introducing new technologies that are more adapted to the needs of the user. We do research that makes environments smarter, more responsive, and more accommodating to the needs of the user, and this without jeopardizing privacy and security of the individual. MAGNET Beyond has a total cost of 16.3 million euros.
The EU Commission has granted 10.3 million euros, and the remaining 6.0 million euros comes from partners. MAGNET Beyond has a duration of 30 months, and starts out January 1st 2006. The MAGNET Beyond consortium has 32 partners.
