RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES SUPPORTING COMMUNICATIONS IN EUROPE 
Tom Pearsall, EPIC, Paris France
Current initiatives are supporting future internet development covering services, internet testbeds, systems for broadband networks and components for very high bit-rate communications. We will present and discuss objectives, timing, and opportunities.

FTTH IN KOREA
K.Z. Cho, KAPID, Gwangju, Korea
The Republic of Korea is one of the most advanced countries in the world with regard to the deployment of FTTH. This connectivity is an essential part of national strategy to facilitate productivity in a country with very dense regions of population separated by rugged terrain.   We will present the up-to-date roadmap for FTTH developments during the next ten years

FTTH AND FITH - COMPLEMENTARY AND CONVERGING NETWORKS
Dirk Kalinowski, OpTech-Net, Duisburg, Germany
Fiber in the home, (FITH) is the logical continuation of FTTH. Driven by broadband connections and services, the demand for in-house networks increases. Easy to install polymer optical fiber networks accomplish these needs and open up new capabilities.
 
Mo.2.Le Mt-Blanc.4
COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT IN EUROPE FOR FIBER OPTIC COMMUNICATIONS
Chris Gracie, SOA, Livingston, UK
Next generation access systems could be either active or passive optical networks and component development will need to consider both approaches. In addition optical integration of components to reduce costs will add development scope.
