The 1st Conference on Collaborative Working Environments for Business and Industry

May 10-11 2006, Brussels

In March 2000, the European Union agreed on a political vision aimed at making the EU the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010. The 'Lisbon Strategy' has reached half time with mixed results, leading to a renewed strategy focusing on 'delivering stronger and lasting growth and creating more and better jobs'. The revitalised strategy relates strongly to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), specifically in the i2010 vision – radically modernising and deploying the EU policy instruments to encourage the development of the digital economy – and in the upcoming Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research and technological development (2007-2013).

The mission of the conference is to bring together a select group of industry practitioners and academics, to jointly address emerging industry needs, and to shape the future research agenda in the area of Collaborative Working Environments. More specifically, participants will contribute to defi ning key research themes for the forthcoming FP7 programmes in which collaborative environments are part of the application research area "ICT supporting business and industry". The conference will also act as a kick-off for projects approved under Call 5 of the IST Programme in FP6 on the area of "Collaborative Working Environments".
