Abstract: This article presents the European FP7 Network of Excellence “Euro-NF” (Networks of the Future) and reviews its set of activities. Specific attention is paid to the concept of Specific Joint Research Projects (SJRP), a series of small but focused projects, integrating at least three Euro-NF partners and targeting joint seminal work, publications as well as full-size follow-up projects. Further to the description of the SJRP concept, a set of three selected SJRP from different areas are presented in detail with respect to motivation, goal, contents, results, and impact.
