RFID has the potential to enhance Europe's competitiveness and is an important driver for the development of an information based economy and society. A wide range of research and application projects in Europe have been set up in different application fields. Communication between these projects is an essential requirement for a competitive industry and for a secure, safe and privacy-preserving deployment of RFID in Europe. To promote this exchange of information the "Cluster of European RFID Projects" has been founded in January 2007. The objectives of the cluster are:
