is a Coordination Action (CA), supporting research under the FP7: FET Proactive Intiative:Self-Awareness in Autonomic Systems (Awareness). 

Awareness provide a supportive environment for research into self-awareness in autonomic systems, helping to create a well-connected community of researchers and conveying a coherent prospect to a wider scientific and technological audience.

The main objectives of AWARE are:

  • To encourage greater cooperation and exchange between projects funded under the FET Proactive Initiative AWARENESS through a range of activities
  •  To support researchers active in self-awareness and autonomic systems and encourage international collaboration.
  • To help improve visibility of the grand challenges and methodological approaches identified by this community via a shared research agenda
  • To support training activities including summer schools and exchange activities
  • To produce and disseminate a repository of knowledge for researchers in this field (for improved synchronisation of concepts, terminology, approaches, etc)
  • To initiate sustainable scientific forums including a range of workshops and consultation events relevant to research interests
  • To promote the field more widely and generate interest by targeting publishers and national science funding agencies as well as commercial and industrial environments.
AWARENESS (Co-ordination Action) is a EU Framework Programmes project funded by EU FP7. Carried out in collaboration with and others. For further information please refer to
