We summarize some relevant research European projects to give the reader a picture on the work in progress in the industrial and academic communities regarding WSNs. For each project we have included a list with basic information (useful if more data on the project are sought) and a summary of the main project objectives. The large number of projects whose research objectives fall into WSNs (in whole or in part) also gives an idea of the high current interest in this technology.
