Abstract : The DIAS (Digital Upper Atmosphere Server) project is a collaborative venture funded by the European Commission eContent Programme. Its objectives are (1) to develop a pan-European network of stations for monitoring the state of the upper atmosphere in real-time, and for collecting historical records of such data, (2) to develop a new digital server for managing and distributing this data, and (3) to develop and promote the generation of new added-value products based on this raw data to Europe and worldwide markets. The DIAS system is considered to be the only European service provider to offer radio propagation services based on European funding, infrastructure and know-how. As DIAS project is approaching the end of the EC funding, which officially finishes at the end of May 2006, the DIAS system is fully developed and many possibilities for the commercial exploitation of DIAS products and services have been investigated. At this critical point, the DIAS Final Conference was organised as the top DIAS event, aiming to bring together data providers and users from large institutions and companies. The DIAS Final Conference represented a unique opportunity to demonstrate and test all products and services released by DIAS and to express the users needs, opinions and comments, as well as to make direct contact with the most important DIAS potential users. This report summarizes the technical meeting of 18 May and the users' meeting of 19 May.
