ASSET (Applications for Smart Structures in Engineering and Technology) is a European Union thematic network set up to encourage the exploitation of smart technologies within the European framework. This paper describes the ASSET Membership, its activities and its objectives and finally attempts to assess its potential impact as one contributor to the process whereby members of the technology community interact with each other. Some of ASSET's activities will be open to the general community, most notably a demonstration seminar in May 2002. This will give the 50 members of the program an opportunity to display their achievements to a wide audience.
