The SPARC project is sponsored by the FIT-IT programme. FIT-IT, short for Research, Innovation, Technology Information Technology, is an Austrian research programme that focuses on high-quality research in the area of information and communication technology. As an initiative of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation, and Technology (bm-vit), the programme will offer more than 10 million Euros in 2005. FIT-IT has been running since 2002 and continually searches for challenging topics likely to become an important part of our IT future. Currently, there are three programme lines: "embedded systems", "semantic systems and services" and "systems-on-chip".
