The important objective of WISTCIS is to accelerate emergence and further development of telematics activities in the seven European CIS countries creating in this way a huge new potential market for IST products. Pursuing this objective WISTCIS will facilitate new working contacts between the producers of Information Society Technologies (IST) Programme telematics products in the countries of European Union and participating organizations in the CIS countries. Such contacts will be deployed by the project into efficient East-West target-oriented working teams. New methods of work will be implemented for these teams to embed them into real environment of the Information Society. Thus WISTCIS is directly related with IST Programme as a whole, as well as with its key action (ii) "New methods of work and electronic commerce". The project also contributes to three other key actions.
WISTCIS significantly contributes to expansion of IST Programme on huge community of the seven European CIS countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
