The goal of this workshop was to share the latest developments of RF-MST projects developed in the framework of European Institutions and other European initiatives. It also promoted exchanges between scientists active in the same area as well as synergies between projects. Clustering and discussions play a key role in enhancing the coherence of this important domain and in promoting synergies and cross-fertilization.
For the first time, the workshop gathered projects financed in the framework of FP7of the EC as well as projects developed in the framework of CATRENE, ENIAC and EURIPIDES. This gave a real boost to the interest of the workshop and helped increase the synergy between various European initiatives.
