We intend to develop a Knowledge Transfer Network for the production,
publishing and distribution of learning and community media. We plan to
use RSS and Bittorrent technologies for distribution in a similar way as
Democracy Player  and BroadCatching .
We intend to develop an appropriate metadata schema based around Dublin
Core and folksonomy .
We intend to develop a multilingual terminology management system ( eg.
Pangloss ) to facilitate knowledge transfer.
We intend to research and develop methods to enable audio-visual content
to be played via existing devices, like television sets and car radios.

I understand that the success rates for applications from Small and
Medium-Sized Enterprises for FP6 is about 10 %. I suspect that this is
due to both the (small) amount of time a SME can give to applications,
and to the lack of specialist know-how on how to put together a FP6 bid.
I would be interested to have your take on this and how we can help
better the chances of FOSS in funding bids -- ideally to feed in to this
event http://foss-means-business.org/ .
