Eu Backs Universal Apps Project

A new European research project aimed at developing technology that will allow applications to be ported across multiple platforms has received €10 million in EU funding, according to reports.

The initiative, known as Webinos, is led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (Fokus) in Germany and has the support of several high-profile industry names. Major European operators Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile), Spain's Telefonica and Telecom Italia are on board, as are device vendors Samsung and Sony Ericsson.

Webinos is researching a framework for apps that will allow them to be delivered across a wide range of connected environments including mobile devices, PCs, web-enabled TVs and in-car units. Its goal is to address the current fragmented apps environment that requires apps to be reprogrammed to work on different platforms.
