PROACT has the short-term goal to stir increased interest and cooperation in the research area of contactless identification technology. The medium-term goal is to establish Graz as a center of excellence in advanced RFID technology and related fields of research. PROACT has the goal to augment teaching activity for RFID topics and to attract students to specialize in an RFID-related area. An appropriate number of high qualified PROACT graduates should find attractive jobs in the local industry. Another goal of PROACT is to strengthen the collaboration of the local industry with academia. Building on existing expertise in this area, PROACT will benefit from the strong local industrial and academic strengths. It will speed up advances by defining a joint programme for research and teaching activities.
