"Une caméra de surveillance capable d'analyser les images qu'elle enregistre au point de déclencher une alerte lorsqu'elle décèle un colis abandonné dans un hall de gare, un ordinateur capable d'entendre la voix humaine et de la restituer sous forme de texte (ou à l'inverse, capable de reconnaître un texte écrit et de le reproduire sous forme vocale), des capteurs capables de guider un train dans un manque total de visibilité : voilà, simplifiés à l'extrême des résultats d'études menées, parmi d'autres, au sein de MULTITEL ..."

Eurêka is 20 years old2006-01-26

All contractors know about Eurêka, at least by name. In 20 years time, the programme allowed Europe to develop the GSM standard or be equipped with the TGV. In all, since its launch, Eurêka made possible the development of 2.600 projects, involving dozens of thousands of participants and investing nearly a 22-billiard euros budget.

Belgium takes advantage of this prodigality, since no less than 66 Belgian projects are currently supported for a total amount of 60,3 billiard euros. The final objective is to increase the value of research, which has always been present within universitary institutions or other organisms dedicated to research. The latest has not always been exploited advisedly, if not exploited at all. Eurêka consists of clusters on the one hand, and of innovative projects on the other hand. The approach used in the innovative projects is cut out for developing products or services ready for marketing. Cluster mechanics aim to gather numerous actors on long-term objectives around identified thematic areas, such as information technology, energy or biotechnics.

Eurêka has had the opportunity to evolve in the course of time. Its promoters are nowadays exploring synergy tracks coming out from the framework programme. What do you think about a 20-year old programme? Do you consider it as old and completely worn?  Not really, if you consider the laudatory comments of those who took advantage of it. Actually, at the administration headquarters of the Walloon Region dealing with research, it has been assured that the programme is really effective. They quote the good experience of research centres as an example, particularly in the fields of TIC and telecoms, operating via Multitel.
