The Chilean National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT) has released a preliminary study entitled ICT in Chile - Research Areas and Capabilities. The study was financially supported by the European Union (through the project CHIEP II).
The document presents preliminary results of an ongoing study, intended to report on the Chilean research capability and working areas in Information and Communication Technologies. The document helps readers to identify Chilean research centres, investigators and research areas, as a way to ease the cooperation in ICT research, development and technology transfer between the European Union and Chile.
The priority areas considered are those specified as research challenges in the work programme 2011 for the ICT theme of the EU FP7 Specific Programme 'Cooperation'
An updated and comprehensive version of the study will be available after December 2010 @ www.chiep.cl.
