CHORUS+ is a Coordinative Action which objectives is to coordinate national and international projects and initiatives in the Search-engine domain and to extend this Coordination in non-European countries.

CHORUS+ works on the following key questions:

  • Support the integration and strengthening of a single European research area by stimulating interaction and co-ordination among research projects at the EU level in the area of audio-visual search engines.
  • Extend cooperation and coordination to Asian countries (Japan, Singapore and China) and, if applicable, to the USA, since the topic of multimedia search engine represents a global concern today which needs a wider cooperation scope than European frontiers. Emergent efforts from these countries will be watched and establishing connections will be investigated.
  • Support the creation of a multi-disciplinary approach for the implementation and setting-up of audio-visual search engines in the EU.
  • Support the dissemination of results and strategies developed within the ICT Program.
