IMProvement in Automation and Control Technology A Joint European initiative
In the present paper the organisational and project management procedures of the TEMPUS JEP “IMPACT — IMProvement in Automation and Control Technology” is presented. The University Extension Centre, Vienna University of Technology, developed an interactive system oriented method for strategic technology forecasting. This method is strongly based on target oriented moderated discussions. The first part of the paper presents how this procedure was adapted to the generation of international projects, i. e. to TEMPUS projects. The second part of the paper is devoted to the presentation of the organisational structure, the management and first results of the JEP IMPACT. The conclusions drawn from the experience of the JEP IMPACT are the following. In the project the most important factors for success were seen in a detailed preparation of the JEP and the development of a “common understanding” of the aims and objectives by all JEP partners in the preparatory phase of the project.
