SWAMI (Safeguards in a World of Ambient Integlligence), an IST Sixth Framework Programme funded project, aims to identify and analyse the social, economic, legal, technological and ethical issues related to identity, privacy and security in the forecasted but not yet deployed Ambient Intelligence (AmI) environment.  

The main objective of the ePerSpace project (Towards the Era of Personal Services at Home and Everywhere), an IST Sixth Framework Programme funded project, is to significantly increase the user acceptance of networked audiovisual systems and applications at home and virtually anywhere by developing innovative interoperable value-added networked services. From an industrial perspective, ePerSpace aims at creating a mass-market adoption of such advanced services thanks to this significantly increased user acceptance. 

MOSAIC (Mobile Worker Support Environments), an IST Sixth Framework Programme funded project, develops scenarios and roadmaps for mobile and location-aware working, builds strategies for deploying innovative mobile work technologies and applications in sector domains, and starts up initiatives for joint research and innovation. 

The objective of AMI@netfood project (Development of Long-term shared vision on AMI Technologies for a Networked Agri-food sector), an IST Sixth Framework Programme funded project, is to support the implementation of the IST Research Priority and Framework Programme, providing a long-term vision on future trends on Scientific and Technology Research oriented to the development and application of Ambient Intelligence technologies to agri-food domain. 

Ambient Intelligence System of Agents for Knowledge-based and Integrated Services for Mobility Impaired users (ASK-IT) (an IST Sixth Framework Programme funded project) aims at establish Ambient Intelligence (AmI) in semantic web enabled services, to support and promote the mobility of Mobility Impaired people, enabling the provision of personalised, self-configurable, intuitive and context-related applications and services and facilitating knowledge and content organisation and processing. 

Mobilisation and Accessibility Planning for PEople with Disabilities (MAPPED), (an IST project partially funded project by the Sixth Framework Programme), will provide users with the ability to plan excursions from any point to any other point, at any time, using public transport, their own vehicle, walking, or using a wheelchair, taking into consideration all their accessibility needs.
