Call for applications for the compilation of a list of experts for the evaluation of proposals received in connection with the eTEN programme, projects of common interest in the field of trans-European telecommunications networks (2003-2004)

eTEN is part of the trans-European networks policy of the EU, which is designed to enable the citizens of the Union, economic operators and regional and local communities to derive full benefit from the setting up of an area without internal frontiers, to strengthen economical, social and territorial cohesion, and to reduce disparities between levels of development of various regions. The primary aim of eTEN is to support the establishment of operational services in the public interest based on electronic data transmission networks, which contribute to improving the quality of life for citizens, strengthen the economic, social and territorial cohesion of the European Union and contribute to the competitiveness of European industry. eTEN stimulates the innovative use of communication services, especially mobile broadband communications, and helps to establish the economically viable model for such services by supporting their validation and roll-out.
