A careful preliminary investigation of the research structure has shown a number of application oriented research areas that need to be restructured. These are dealt with in the Vertical activities, to make the research more efficient by combining the resources from a few leading institutions, and to make it more relevant to the applications by including industries and users.

Horizontal activities will deal with software, testing, information, education and dissemination. The main objective is the integration of knowledge from different application areas, thereby avoiding duplication.

External activities are focused on Spreading the antenna knowledge outside the ACE Network.
