ECOLEAD Summer School on Collaborative Networks Helsinki, 28.-29.9.06


Conference, http://www.pro-ve.org/

"Collaborative networks of organizations provide
a basis for competitiveness, world-excellence,
and agility in turbulent market conditions. They
can support SMEs to identify and exploit new
business potential, boost innovation, and
increase their knowledge. Networking of SMEs with
large-scale enterprises also contributes to the
success of the big companies in the global
market. Reinforcing the effectiveness of
collaborative networks, mostly based on SMEs, and
creating the necessary conditions for making them
endogenous reality in the European industrial
landscape, are key survival factors."

ECOLEAD (European Collaborative networked
Organizations LEADership initiative), is an
"Integrated Project" co-funded by the European
Commission within 6th Framework Programme
(2002-2006). ECOLEAD started in April 2004 and
involves 27 partners from 15 countries across
Europe, see
http://virtual.vtt.fi/virtual/ecolead/. This
project aims to create the necessary strong
foundations and mechanisms for establishing the
most advanced collaborative and network-based
industry society where "most enterprises will be
part of some sustainable collaborative networks
that will act as breeding environment for the
formation of dynamic virtual organizations in
response to fast changing market conditions".

Program committee:
Hamideh Afsarmanesh (UvA, The Netherlands), Luis
M. Camarinha-Matos (UNINOVA, Portugal), Mitja
